Initial study of oblique hard target projectile impact of normal and high strength concrete targets
2011 (English)In: Nordic concrete research: Research projects 2011: Proceedings of XXI Nordic Concrete Research Symposium / [ed] D.H. Bager, 2011, 63-66 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The ability to predict penetration resistance in concrete is necessary to evaluate the vulnerability of protective designs for impacts by penetrating weapons, or deformable projectiles. The paper presents experimental work regarding oblique projectile impact of both normal strength and high performance concrete targets with modern type of hard target penetrators. Furthermore, finite element (FE) analyses of non-normal projectile impacts of the normal strength concrete targets are presented, and its limitations discussed.
