The Effect of Soil Parameters on Earth Penetration of Projectiles

Description: The purpose of this study can be divided into the three following parts: 1) to present complete sets of data obtained for projectile penetration into soil targets of precisely known properties, and to describe how to build and test these targets; 2) to present a numerical method of data analysis for empirically determining the force on a projectile, during penetration; and 3) to demonstrate how physical soil parameters, as well as impact velocity and a projectile property influence penetration.
