Effect of composite covering on ballistic fracture damage development in ceramic plates
This paper describes the damage development in ceramics with and without composite cover during ballistic impact. This is relevant for ceramic inserts in body armor that are often covered with a composite material. To study ...
Surface treatment of alumina ceramic for improved adhesion to a glass fibre-reinforced polyester composite
The adhesion between an alumina ceramic and a glass fibre-reinforced polyester matrix composite has been investigated. The effect of various alumina surface treatments, including degreasing, etching, plasma, grit-blasting ...
Fragmentation of an armour piercing projectile after impact on composite covered alumina tiles
In a typical body armour system, a hard armour plate is often used in conjunction with a soft ballistic panel. The main purpose of the armour plate is to erode and fragment an impacting projectile, such as 7.62 mm armour ...
