A mathematical model is presented for prediction of linear elastodynamic response of metal matrix composite penetrators. Although it is recognized that for the applications envisaged, the anelastic effects are the dominant ones, a study of linear elastic behavior is of importance inasmuch as it yields information about the composite properties required for simulation, using, for example, the HELP code where material strength is not neglected.
