To fully understand the damage potential of fragments from bomb and shell casings, it is necessary to capture them in their in-flight condition. This means they must be slowed from several times the speed of sound without further break-up or distortion. A new compaction model for stopping these high-velocity strips of metal in foamed or exfoliated material has been developed and found to match experimental data.

This talk is part of the Surfaces, Microstructure and Fracture Group series.
