Pagination or Media Count:
The Institute for Advanced Technology IAT has conducted, and continues to conduct, a broad program to investigate the penetration characteristics and lethality of rod penetrators. The IATs investigations are experimental, analytical, and numerical and are concerned primarily with slender rods impacting armor steel and ceramic targets at hypervelocity that is, above about two kms. This report summarizes the results developed in representative examples of these studies that supported the U.S.IiK Project Arrangement. The work accomplished supports items a, b, and c of the agreed-upon SOW. Each summary is accompanied by a bibliography listing relevant publications generated at the lAT and elsewhere.
