The impact of long steel projectiles onto thick steel targets is
experimentally and numerically studied in this paper.
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
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.
velocities ranged from 1400 m/s to 2300 m/s.
The penetration depth
for each experiment was determined.
