The first part of this 2-volume set, part of an ongoing series, presents previously unpublished research on the design and modeling of ballistic devices ranging from shells to missiles, including explosives, propellants and internal components. The second part investigates the effects of ballistic penetrants on a variety of targets, including human models, as well as hard targets and diverse armors made from engineered fibers, ceramics, metal alloys and concrete. Data is included on the modeling and testing of novel devices, explosives and shielding strategies.
