Explicit Non-Linear Finite Element Analysis with Fluid Structure Coupling of a High Velocity Impact
Type of Degreethesis
MetadataShow full item record
A computational investigation was undertaken to study the pressure wave generated from a high velocity, multi-material penetrator impacting a compartmented cylindrical container. Variations of the penetrator material stacking order are studied to evaluate the efficiency of delivering energy to the target. The relevant application of this research, some previous work done in high velocity impact dynamics, a comparison of the different penetrator configurations, and the overall results of the analysis are discussed.
