Paper Title:
Simulation on Ceramic Composite Armors against Multi-Hit of APPs
  Abstract

The multi-hit of armor piercing projectiles (APPs) is one of the main treats to lightweight vehicles. Based on published ballistic experiments of Al2O3/Al2024 laminated composite armors against 7.62mm APP, the debonding of ceramic tiles was successfully simulated by setting reasonable material model and contact algorithm. A method named Geometric Intervals Method (GIM) was developed for simulation of multi-hit and its feasibility and rationality were investigated with the finite element code LS-SYNA. The numerical results shows that GIM has taken into account the effects of target damage caused by former APP impact on the target responds to later APP penetration. GIM can be used to simulate composite amours against multi-hit.
