Considerations on the Use of Certain Ceramic Materials for Increasing the Protection of the Military

Open access


This paper captures several aspects regarding the behavior of ceramic materials subjected to the impact with ballistic penetrators, focusing especially on the way they reduce the speed of the projectiles. Moreover, the numerical research associated with these models adds more knowledge in the field of the use of these ceramic materials for the protection of the military.
