Abstract : Experimental firings of small blunt-nosed cylindrical steel projectiles against simulated reinforced concrete slabs at normal incidence and obliquity were conducted. Both unfilled projectiles and projectiles filled with an explosive simulant (plasticine) were fired. Slab thicknesses ranged from one to ten projectile diameters. The deformed shapes and exit velocities of the projectiles were determined. These data will be used for the verification of a new technique being developed for finite element modeling of blunt projectile response to target impact.
