Theory and Experiment Study of Normal Penetration of Slender Nose Projectile into Steel Target
Partial penetration means partial body of projectile is in target, the other out of target. Analysis model of slender nose projectile partial penetrates steel target is proposed base on cavity expansion theory (plate thickness is smaller than projectile nose length), and the variation relation of penetration depth with initial velocity is concluded when projectile partially penetrates steel target. Penetration tests are carried out on hard projectile penetrates steel target, and the predicted results of penetration depth have good agreement with experimental results.
