Abstract:

The following conclusions are based upon the results of this investigation 1 The ballistic properties of the new age-hardenable nickel alloy were superior to those of the Beryllium-Nickel K Monel, and Z Nickel alloys. The ballistic limit of the new age-hardenable nickel alloy was 350 fs above the specifications. 2 With the excitation of K Monel, these alloys were magnetic. 3 Due to the high nickel content of these alloys, it is questionable that they can be considered for armor construction at this time.
