Abstract:

Although the propagation of plastic deformation or permanent set is of fundamental importance for the interpretation of impact and penetration problems in which the stresses exceed the elastic limit of the bombarded material, the present treatment is perhaps the first attempt to compute the stress and strain caused by impact beyond the elastic limit. The method presented may possibly open the way to a systematic interpretation of a great many impact and penetration problems in which plastic deformations of beams, plates and armor are involved and, if the stress-strain relation of the material is known, may lead to a prediction of the critical velocity causing rupture.
