Abstract:

The main subject of the research program was the further development of elastic-viscoplastic constitutive equations to represent a wide range of material behavior and loading conditions and application of the equations to static and dynamic structural problems. Associated investigations included generalization of the constitutive equations to multiaxial stress states and studies on anelastic materials. Other topics in the program were investigations of ballistic penetration single target plates under oblique impact and of multi-layered targets subject to normal impact, impact strength of composites, and acoustic emission of composites. The accomplishments of the program are discussed and proposed directions of future research are indciated.
