Simulation on Ballistic Performance of Ceramic/Metal Composite Armor
In this paper, we will simulation three different structures of the ceramic/metal armor by ansys Ls-dyna, under the condition of the same thickness ceramic. In the paper, every structure was impacted with the flat-ended ballistic with 600m/s velocity. Through calculation we find that the case2 and case3 has the nearly equal residual velocity, lower than the case1, so the case2 and case3 are superior to the case1, but case3 has the smallest damage area, so that the case3 has the most excellent ballistic performance, especially on the performace of multi-hit.
