Abstract

Tungsten powder was ball milled in a controlled atmosphere environment with rapidly solidified powders to produce a nanostructured material. The milled powders were then Hot Isostatic Press (HIP) consolidated. The metallic binder phase milled with the tungsten is known to exhibit stress induced martensite. The unique properties of the binder phase combined with the nanostructure of the resulting tungsten powder composite show promise for enhanced performance of ballistic penetrators. Mirostructures and properties are presented.
