Abstract:

The sound speed in porous B4C Boron Carbide was measured and predicted on the basis of a spherical void model and a penny crack model. Neither model does well for porosity exceeding 10 percent. Measured values of Hugoniot elastic limit for porous B4C agree well with those predicted by the Steinbergs model. Measured transverse stress in the elastic range of B4C under 1-d strain condition agrees with the predictions. jg
