Abstract:

A constitutive model for ceramics by Johnson and Holmquist has been incorporated and validated in the finite element computer program LS-DYNA2D. Using experimental data acquired at DREV, parameters for high density ceramics around 98 theoretical maximum density have been established. The effect of varying some of the parameters on the calculated depths of penetration into semi-infinite targets and the ballistic limits of armor has been investigated.
