The 26th International Symposium on Ballistics books contain 231 original research papers on all phases of ballistics, including how a variety of projectiles are launched, their explosive dynamics, and their impact and penetration effects on a wide range of engineered and natural materials. A separate section is devoted to analysis of personnel vulnerability from numerous types of projectiles and explosives.
With its empirical data, physical theory and modeling techniques, the information in this book is critical for development of ballistic-based systems and technologies for resisting their impact and minimizing damage.
The papers in this text were first presented at a September, 2011 conference organized by the National Defense Industrial Association and the International Ballistics Society.
The CD-ROM displays figures and illustrations in articles in full color along with a title screen and main menu screen. Each user can link to all papers from the Table of Contents and Author Index and also link to papers and front matter by using the global bookmarks which allow navigation of the entire CD-ROM from every article. Search features on the CD-ROM can be by full text including all key words, article title, author name, and session title. The CD-ROM has Autorun feature for Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 or higher products along with the program for Adobe Acrobat Reader with Search 9.0. One year of technical support is included with your purchase of this product.
