31. Thermal Properties and Thermal Modeling of Ballistic Clay Box
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7840
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 12/30/2011
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Amanda Lattam Forster, Kirk D Rice, Michael A Riley
Abstract: A critical component of hard and soft body armor testing is the utilization of a clay block behind the component being evaluated. One of the performance metrics used to evaluate products is the penetration depth into the clay of an indentation ...
