Analytical solution for penetration of deformable blunt projectiles into the metallic targets
AbstractAt the present research, a new analytical model is developed for the impact of a deformable blunt projectile to metallic targets using the plastic stress wave propagation theory and the momentum equations. At this model, the deformation of the projectile is considered, too. Also, the effects of dishing and plugging phenomena on failure of the target are investigated. All of the obtained results are compared with the experimental and other available ana-lytical results where good agreement has been observed. The other outcome of this research is a new definition for the penetration stages which includes 9 ones. Motion equa-tions are derived for each of these stages, accordingly.
