about this item

This book makes available original ballistics technology from around the world on a wide variety of weapons and their effects, including the design and trajectory/stability control of dozens of projectiles ranging from shells to missiles. The book's authors discuss the efficacy and development of propellants, munitions, and igniters and offer new approaches for modeling and testing. Also investigated in Volume 1 are shielding and protection strategies for individual persons and other targets.Volume 2 offers research on the mechanical behavior of multiple types of explosives, as well as impact and penetration data from projectile effects on surfaces ranging from natural phenomena such as water and soils to metallic plating and material-engineered armors.Papers in these volumes were presented at a conference organized by the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) with the International Ballistics Society.
