Abstract:

In accordance with a request of the Office, Chief of Ordnance, ballistic tests have been conducted at this arsenal on samples of 6-ply glass webbing received from Russell Manufacturing Company. On the basis of resistance to perforation per unit weight this material, which is equivalent in weight per unit surface area to .079 in. of steel, is considerably inferior to steel and other substitute materials tested here.
