Abstract : This report contains the results of ballistic testing of fabricated sections of Dual-Property Steel Armor (DPSA). Specific items considered were bent, rolled, and extruded sections that simulated the geometry of close-fitting armor for critical aircraft components. Ballistic data for flat-plate sections were available prior to this program; however, the data did not include the geometric or fabrication effects. The purpose of this program was to determine whether the ballistics armor characteristics changed as a result of fabrication. Within the range of the formed sections tested, no significant changes were noted in the ballistic properties of the material as a result of the forming operations. (Author)
