Frangibility Quantification of Frangible Bullet upon Impact on a Hard Target
The article presents a new method of quantitative evaluation of the degree of disintegration, called frangibility of frangible bullets, based on shooting experiments. On the basis of the dependence of the Frangibility Factor of the bullet on its impact velocity, the frangibility index is determined as a quantifier of the projectile’s ability to disintegrate into fragments applied for a certain range of interest. The method can be used to assess the ability to disintegrate into fragments of various types of bullets, preferably frangible bullets produced by powder metallurgy technologies. The proposed method was used to quantify the frangibility of five experimental frangible bullets.
