Quasi-static and high strain rate properties of a cross-ply metal matrix composite
A series of compression tests has been carried out at quasi-static and high strain rates on cylindrical samples of an alumina fiber/Al-6061 metal matrix composite. The composite plates were prepared with fibers in the 0°, ...
Development of novel multilayer materials for impact applications: A combined numerical and experimental approach
A well-verified and validated numerical model was used to investigate stress wave propagation in a multilayer material subjected to impact loading. The baseline material consisted of a ceramic faceplate and composite backing ...
