Abstract

A new method for measuring the depth time history of rigid body penetration into brittle materials under a deceleration of ~10^5 g. The method includes: sabot-projectile, sabot-projectile separation and penetration depth detection systems. Relatively small intrinsic time error (3%) and depth error (0.3–0.7 mm) results. Penetration depth time history in a series of 4140 steel projectile penetrations into a mortar are measured at velocities of 100 to 500 m/sec with sufficient accuracy such that differentiation with respect to time yields stopping force, via Newton's second law.
