Abstract:

Two projectile IGES geometry files are provided by ONR. Finite element models have been developed for both projectiles in HyperMesh which will be used in different FEA simulations. Quarter-symmetric model is used in AutoDyn to simulate DoP experiments on aluminum targets and ceramic-faced aluminum targets with .30cal AP M2 projectile using SPH. Future work will provide model validation runs based on the DoP experiments described in reference - ARL-TR-2219, 2000.
