Paper Title:
Microhardness of Various Bullet-Proof Ceramics
  Abstract

Micro-hardness is one of the most important mechanical properties for bullet-proof ceramics. The micro-hardness of typical and commercial available bullet-proof ceramics alumina, silicon carbide and boron carbide were studied in this paper. The result indicated that the high ballistic performance (protection coefficient) was mostly attributed to the high micro-hardness of the ceramics. The ballistic protection mechanics of the ceramics was analyzed based on the ceramics’ hardness, structures and protection coefficients.
