Abstract:

The purpose of this investigation was to determine some of the metallurgical characteristics of high quality homogeneous armor plate. The following characteristics are desirable in armor plate to obtain optimum ballistic properties a A thoroughly deoxidized steel, resulting in a fairly clean steel, free from segregations of nonmetallic inclusions. b A fine, uniform grain after proper heat treatment, resulting in a uniform distribution of carbides in the microstructure. c Brinell hardness of 418-444.
