de Butarque 15, Leganes, 28911 Madrid, Spain ABSTRACT The impact of long steel projectiles onto thick steel targets is experimentally and numerically studied in this paper.

The projectiles were launched using a sabot technology, and impacted against a 2m x 2m square plates of thicknesses ranging from 0.2 to 0.4 m.

A total of 49 impacts were made.

Projectile lengths to diameter ratios of l/d=12, l/d=18 and l/d=25 were considered.

Impact velocities ranged from 1400 m/s to 2300 m/s.

The penetration depth for each experiment was determined.
