Abstract:

Variations in temperature within the range investigated 175 F to - 65 F apparently have no deleterious effects upon the resistance of Doron to perforation by cal. .45 steel-jacketed ball projectiles or by cal. .22 fragment- simulating projectiles, G-2. However there is reason to believe that elevation of the temperature above 200 F may result in a lowering of resistance of this material.
