Paper Title:
Solutions for Impact over Aerospace Protection

New ballistic protection systems based on alternative materials have been recently developed. One of the industry’s objectives is to develop lighter and stronger defensive systems, which allow higher mobility and safety for both vehicles and humans. This work studies the behavior of an aerospace protection against a projectile impact, seeking an optimized construction. The Al-Qureshi et al. model suggests a ceramic-metal layer system and describes its behavior. The literature shows, due to the considered parameters, the erosion tax and the loss of velocity. The phenomenon is described in steps, presenting particular effects for each. The equations are not equal between the stages showing different properties. The present work searches for a solution that can show the expression for mass and velocity, for each stage of the phenomenon. The results from the numerical method used were plotted and analyzed. The treatment was performed using Maplesoft Maple software. As a result, graphs were generated, which allow a deeper analysis of the model. Finally, advance in the knowledge of fracture processes in materials by high velocity impact can be concluded. This fact permits developments in materials that can perform shock absorption.
