Abstract : The object of this research is to investigate the Physical, Ballistic and Structural Properties of Armor Plate Castings. The results of this test indicate that fine porosity and slightly spongy metal, as revealed by radio-graphic examination, do not lower the ballistic limit. Variations in the ballistic limit of two castings of the same nominal thickness may be due to small differences in actual thickness.
