This book presents recent and cutting edge advances in our understanding of key aspects of the response of materials under extreme loads that take place during high velocity impact and penetration.
The focus of the content is on the numerous challenges associated with characterization and modeling of complex interactions that occur during these highly dynamic events.
The book gathers together selected papers based on the work presented as invited lectures at the 2nd US-France symposium held on 28-30 May 2008 in Rocamadour, France. The conference was organized by Eric Buzaud (DGA, Centre d'Etudes de Gramat) under the auspices of the International Center for Applied Computational Mechanics (ICACM).
