  • Original research from around the world on weapons-grade projectiles, warheads, missiles, guns and their effects on target materials
  • New information on shaped charges, fire, control strategies, simulation, blast resistance, non-lethal systems and more
  • 190 original presentations in two printed volumes, plus searchable CD

The first part of this 2-volume set, part of an ongoing series, presents previously unpublished research on the design and modeling of ballistic devices ranging from shells to missiles, including explosives, propellants and internal components.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.

Papers in this text were presented at a symposium organized by the National Defense Industrial Association with the International Ballistics Society.
