Analysis of Material Punching Including a Rotational Speed of the Projectile
Materials used for the construction of ballistic shields are characterized by a variety of behaviours under the influence of external loads. Ballistic impact (by a bullet) in armour (ballistic shield) is an example of the phenomena that could be considered in the category of a dynamic load caused by the strike of the mass. Computer simulations are commonly used in such situations. It is especially important to adopt a proper model of the behaviour of the material. This paper presents the results obtained by simulating free 3D points and using the application developed by the authors for the purpose of this research. The made calculations include the translational motion and rotary motion of the projectile as well as the stiffness of the material, the damping of the material, friction at the points of contacting surfaces, viscous friction and plastic deformation (the material beyond the plastic yield point is perfectly plastic). The results of simulations were validated with experimental research.
