Paper Abstract

Experimental results are presented to study the phenomena of both normal and oblique impact of flat-nosed projectiles on metallic plates, a domain where almost no test data is available. Aluminum and copper strikers of 20 mm nominal diameter were used at normal incidence for both steel and copper targets with thicknesses from 10 to 30 mm. Impact velocities ranged from 300 to 1200 m/s. Steel strikers of 20 mm nominal diameter were fired at aluminum targets. Impact velocities ranged from 350 to 900 m/s, and target obliquity was varied from 0° to 50°. Projectile and target deformations were examined, and the effect of obliquity was shown.
