Damage Evolution In Ballistic Impact Of Glass Plates
MetadataShow full item record
High-velocity impact onto a layered glass target produces a very extensive damage pattern exhibiting many distinct morphologies. High-speed photography reveals failure waves and cracks that move at acoustic velocities. These prompt features evolve into a complex final damage pattern that includes needle fragments around the penetration cavity, radial cracks at mid distance, and dicing cracks near the edges.
