Abstract : In the present study, simplified models for calculating the penetration depth, scabbing, and perforation thicknesses for concrete targets have been proposed. These models consider the dynamic strain rate effect in the estimation of penetration parameters. The results of proposed model have been compared with the experimental data.

Abstract : The software package described here deals with the assessment of damage inflicted by missiles carrying prefragmented, bomblet, incendiary, runway-denial penetration submunition (RDPS), smart munition, and terminally guided submunition warhead. The targets to be neutralised could be static, semistatic or mobile, like runways, bridges, bunkers, armoured tanks, soft-skinned vehicles, and personnel. This is graphical user interface (GUI) - based software, where the user can specify the target dimensions, target types, the number of missiles, its aim point, the type of warhead and the mode of operation. The software gives the number of targets that have been neutralised effectively, as the output. This GUI-based software has been developed using Microsoft Visual Basic, Version 6.0.
