Use of advanced materials in protection against high-velocity impact and explosion


Numerical studies of the behavior of combined barriers consisting of solid and porous materials were carried out during high-speed impact on them with thin plates. It is shown that the introduction of plates of porous materials into the composition of combined barriers can significantly reduce the amplitude of compression waves and reduce the likelihood of spall damage. Comparison of the results of numerical modeling of high-speed impact interaction processes with the experimental results of other authors showed their good qualitative and quantitative agreement.
