Evaluation of Perforation Resistance of Magnesium Alloy by Hypervelocity Impact

Abstract:

Article Preview

Magnesium alloy is the lightest metal that is used as a structural material. It has a higher specific tensile strength and specific stiffness than Iron and Aluminum alloy, and the dent is not caused easily from Iron and Aluminum alloy at the impact. Therefore, Magnesium alloy is widely used in many areas, especially as an external shell of a mobile device and automotive parts which replaces iron and plastic, etc., and its demand is expected to grow in the future. In this paper we studied the hypervelocity impact with a ballistic range to clarify the characteristic of Magnesium alloys which had such a characteristic. The effect of impact velocity, temperature and the size of perforation hole were investigated experimentally. The perforation resistance of Magnesium alloys and their impact behavior were characterized.
