Paper Abstract

This paper presents measurement and analysis of impact and penetration effects upon aluminum alloy targets by the caliber 7.62 mm and the caliber 12.7 mm armor piercing bullet. The impact velocity ranged from 250 m/s to 850 m/s, and the impact angles were o° and 30°. A number of aluminum alloy plates were used as the targets, with different materials and thickness. Using the measurement values of ballistic limit, an empirical relation between the initial incident energy of the core of the bullet and the quasistatic piercing energy is obtained.
