Ballistic Behaviour of Thick Steel Armour Plate under Oblique Impact: Experimental Investigation .
Keywords: Penetration, Crater volume, Obliquity
AbstractThe ballistic behaviour of thick steel amlOW- plate has been investigated at different obliquity when impacted by an ogive-shaped steel projectile. The ballistic experiments have been conducted in the velocity range 300-800 m/s. Both the thickness of the target plate and the diameter of the projectile were 20 Inm. At 30 and 45. obliquity 20 mm plate provides full protection at 800 m/s, whereas at 0 and 15. obliquity, the plate provides protection up to 600 m/s. At 15 and 30° obliquity, the plate exhibits lesser energy absorption capacity due to higher crater volume.
