Terminal ballistic experiments for the development of turbine engine blade containment technology

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The ballistic experiments reported herein were conducted in three sets between October 1993 and November 1994. The first set of experiments examined the ballistic failure of annealed titanium plates. These experiments were performed in a manner consistent with earlier experiments conducted at United Technologies` Pratt and Whitney Division. The second set of experiments examined the ballistic performance of select aluminum and titanium alloys in single-plate and laminate form. In both sets of experiments, the failure modes of the targets were observed and catalogued. The third set of experiments evaluated underlying issues associated with geometric scaling. Blunt .30-and .50-caliber hard steel ... continued below
