Question:penetration of penetrator (projectile)

  1. Sep 16, 2013 #1
    Dear All,

    I have a problem and would like to solve it as soon as possible. Please find it below:

    There is a long rod projectile and a semi-infinite target (1-D solution is fine)

    Projectile velocity 4000m/s
    Projectile density 7,5g/cm3
    Long rod has a length of 50mm and diameter 5mm
    Projectile yield strength 100MPa

    Target density 8g/cm3
    Target yield strength 500MPa

    Calculate the penetration?

    Could you please help me to solve this problem.

    Thanks in advance for your efforts.
