Abstract

Abstract The experimental results for the perforation energy of mild steel plate struck by flat-ended, non-deforming, cylindrical penetrators have been correlated using the principles of dimensional analysis. A correlation is presented for long penetrators. It is shown that for short penetrators a different response of the target is observed and that, at present, there are insufficient published data to produce a unifying correlation.
