Abstract : A metallurgical examination has been completed on two 21/2 in. thick rolld homogeneous and four 2 in. thick cast armor plates which had been tested with 105mm Tg proof projectiles. In general, good correlations were established between ballistic shock properties and metallurgical properties, namely the fracture test and V-notch Charpy impact energy values.
