Abstract:

This is a progress report on work conducted in FY93 to define the dynamic response of S-2 glass reinforced plastic laminate under ballistic loading. The work is divided into three parts, a description of ballistic impact damage in monolithic laminates produced by fragment simulators and measurement of target residual compressive strength, determination of material dynamic properties, and measurement and analysis of stress levels in glass reinforced plastic laminates under ballistic impact. Enlargement and extension of the data base constructed herein is planned for FY94. The overall objectives of this effort are to provide design guidelines for application of S-2 glass reinforced plastic in vehicular structures and to define the dynamic behavior of this material for general applications in armor technology.
