Advances in Ceramic Armor IV Advunces in Ceramic Armor I V Editcd by Lisa Prokurat Franks Copyright (c? 2009 The American Ceramic Society. M. A. J. S. Army Research Laboratory, Survivability Materials Branch, 4600 Deer Creek Loop, AMSRDARL-WM-MD, APG, MD, USA ABSTRACT The dominant materials technology used for ballistic transparency protection of armored tactical platforms in commercial and military applications is low cost glass. Currently, the development of next generation ceramics is a key to providing enhanced protection capability and extended service performance for future armored windows.
As large transparent ceramic materials are available commercially in sizes up to 900 cm2, progress in ballistic designs has offered substantial increases in performance in transparent armor design. Among the potential ceramic materials considered for armor - sapphire, edge-form-growth sapphire, magnesium aluminate spinel, aluminium oxynitride - one was selected for the current pursuit, magnesium aluminate spinel (MgA1204). Although individually, single impact testing has shown small variations in ballistic efficiencies (4 0%) of ceramics, to achieve multi-hit performance, all of the ceramics are effectively equivalent.
As ratioa as: ah= I-a (3) A proper reference height value must be selected to calculate the bearing area ratio. Using all the atomic force microscopy surface images (corresponding to all the laminates with different levels of adhesion), relationships between the bearing area and bearing depth were generated for laminates with different pummel ratios. 0 nm was chosen experimentally to estimate the bearing area, which is related to the crack ratio (ah)for each laminate. '^, the longitudinal and shear spring stiffness were estimated as shown in Table 11.
