Development of Gun Bullet Protect Board - Gun Bullet Experiment and Analysis -


Article Preview

The purpose of this study is development of gun-bullet protect board. The collision test was executed in such a way to launch a bullet and collide to the target by the air gun. The mock bullet made of brass was used as the projectile. The collision behaviors of polycarbonate (PC) target board were clarified. Next, the analysis of gun bullet collision between the bullet and PC board has been practiced by non-liner dynamic FEM commercial software (AUTODYNTM) and an effective bullet protection board is designed based on this analytical result.
