**Newest Volumes in BALLISTICS series**

  • Presents high-level research on various caliber guns, cannons, warheads, shells, bullets, and other launchers and penetrants, as well as their impact effects on natural and designed materials, including large-scale targets and body armors, and ultrasonic cleaning of weapon components
  • Critical information on emerging explosives, propellants, and projectiles for missiles, railguns, artillery, bullets, and more
  • Provides new modeling and test data on projectile design and guidance, propellants, charges and explosives for military and aerospace applications
  • Over 260 presentations

This book makes available original ballistics technology from around the world on a wide variety of weapons and their effects, including the design and trajectory/stability control of dozens of projectiles ranging from shells to missiles. The book’s authors discuss the efficacy and development of propellants, munitions, and igniters and offer new approaches for modeling and testing. Also investigated in Volume 1 is gradient printing of energetic materials, and mechanical behavior of multiple types of explosives.

Volume 2 offers research on impact and penetration data from projectile effects on surfaces ranging from natural phenomena such as water, to metallic plating and material-engineered armors. Recent advances in reactive fragments, which provide enhanced terminal effects, are presented. Detailed analysis of warhead mechanisms such as the formation and terminal effects of shaped charge jets are reported.

Papers in these volumes were presented at a conference jointly organized and supported by the Aeronautical Society of India, Hyderabad Branch, India, and the International Ballistics Society.
