Effect of material properties on interaction of ceramic and glass flyer plates with hypervelocity jet

A study on the effect of material properties on the interaction of explosively driven ceramic and glass plates with shaped charge jets is performed in order to bolster future studies on the design of reactive cassettes with non-steel flyer plates. A symmetric steel reactive cassette construction is taken as a base, and front and back plates are selectively changed with ceramic or glass plates keeping the areal densities similar. Plates manufactured from two different grades of alumina, silicon carbide, boron carbide, and borosilicate glass are employed to assess the ballistic protection performance of reactive cassettes. It is seen that a high density and fracture toughness is desired for the front plate and high bulk impedance for the back plate, respectively. Moreover, replacing the front plate of a steel cassette with an alumina or silicon carbide plate increases the ballistic protection efficiency close to 50%. Finally, the effect of material selection is investigated by hydrocode numerical simulations. The early phases of the interaction process are presented to reveal the basics of initial hole closure on the flyer plate and the determination of the length of the jet precursor.


Effect of piezoceramic hysteresis in passive and hybrid structural acoustic control
Özer, Mehmet Bülent (null; 2001-09-12)
Structural acoustic control via passive and hybrid electrical shunting of a piezoceramic wafer bonded onto the surface of a simply supported plate is investigated with emphasis on modeling and understanding the effect of piezoceramic nonlinearity on system performance. A nonlinear rate-independent finite-dimension Ishlinskii hysteresis model is experimentally identified for the PZT wafer by itself and then integrated into the coupled dynamic equations of the overall system consisting of the plate and electr...
Effect of CNTs dispersion on electrical, mechanical and strain sensing properties of CNT/epoxy nanocomposites
Tanabi, Hamed; Erdal Erdoğmuş, Merve (Elsevier BV, 2019-03-01)
The remarkable electrical and mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) render CNT-reinforced nanocomposites as potentially attractive materials for strain-sensing and monitoring purposes. The dispersion state of CNTs in polymeric matrix has a significant role on the physical and the mechanical properties of the resulting CNT reinforced nanocomposites. In this study, a series of experiments were designed to investigate the effect of dispersion process parameters and CNT concentration, as well as thei...
Effect of CNT impregnation on the mechanical and thermal properties of C/C-SiC composites
Tulbez, Simge; ESEN, ZİYA; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (2020-06-01)
The present study investigates the effect of additional carbon source, in the form of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), on mechanical and thermal properties of carbon fiber reinforced silicon carbide (C/C-SiC) ceramic matrix composites (CMC) produced by liquid silicon infiltration (LSI) technique. The CNTs used in this study were impregnated into the C/C preforms before the liquid silicon infiltration stage. The results showed that the addition of excess carbon to the C/C preforms in the form of CNTs enhanced Si inf...
Effect of Cu addition on the microstructural constituents and mechanical properties of twin roll cast AlFeMnSi alloys
Meydanoglu, Onur; Birbaşar, Onur; Ulus, Ali; Beyhan, Bariş; Kalay, Yunus Eren (2015-01-01)
In this study, the effect of copper addition on microstructural evolution, mechanical and corrosion properties of twin roll cast (TRC) AlFeMnSi alloy system mainly used in container foil applications was investigated. Microstructural characterization studies were conducted on as-cast, homogenization annealed and final products by employing optical and scanning electron microscopes. The mechanical properties of the samples obtained from compositional were determined at the thickness of final product by tensi...
Effect of hydrogen on fatigue behavior of a cadmium coated high strength steel
Güleken, Ümran Başak.; Gürbüz, Rıza; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2019)
C Despite the associated health and safety concerns of Cadmium, this material remains the most commonly used fastener plating material in aerospace applications. The plating operation is done by a well understood and common electrodeposition process. If a cadmium plated part has high strength (1000 MPa and above) then in order to prevent hydrogen embrittlement it must be baked at 191°C for 23 hours, within 2 hours after plating. Yet it has been seen that parts fail due to hydrogen embrittlement during servi...
