Abstract:

The object of this 1942 study was 1 To determine the ballistic limit values of spot welded 18-in. butt strap joints on 14-in. armor 2 To determine the ballistic shock properties of sections supported at each corner by a spot welded tab of 18-in. x 12-in. cold rolled strip and 3 To determine the effect of spot welding butt strap joints on the hardness of 14-in. face hardened and 14-in. rolled homogeneous armor.
