Lip Height and its Significance in Ballistic Studies
AbstractThe mechanism of lip formation in steel arrnour plates has been investigated. Low alloy steelarrnour plates of20, 40 and 80 mm thickness were impacted at zero incidence by steel projectiles of 6.l ,20 and 40 mm diameter, respectively at.different velocities. The lip height was observed to exhibitdefinite correlations with other ballistic parameters like depth of penetration, crater volume, plasticzone and kinetic energy of the projectile.
