The main Purpose of the symposium was to bring together the research activities of various groups studying hypervelocity impact. The objective was to promote understanding of the basic physics a comprehensive historical review of research in the field.

This book provides the first such accumulation of research on hypervelocity impact in almost Author: C.E.

Anderson. The book discusses hypervelocity accelerators; stress wave propagation in solids; and the theory of impact. The text also describes the application of the theory of impact on thin targets and shields and correlation with experiment; the numerical evaluation of hypervelocity impact phenomena; and Hypervelocity impact book studies of impact-generated shock Book Edition: 1.

Hypervelocity impact tests were conducted to determine if Micro-Meteoroid/Orbital Debris impacts could be reliably detected and located using simple passive ultrasonic methods.

The objective of Target Fg(RCC)-1 was to study hypervelocity impacts through the. The Hypervelocity Impact Society (HVIS) fosters the development and exchange of technical information in the discipline of hypervelocity impact phenomena by promoting technical excellence, encouraging peer review publications, and holding technical meetings on a periodic basis.

To design effective shielding for spacecraft and to evaluate the risk posed by orbital debris and meteoroids, we must be able to perform tests in the laboratory.

The Effect of Viscosity in Hypervelocity Impact Cratering Robert W. MacCormack National Aeronautics and Space Administration Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, California Hypervelocity impact experiments.

A series of impact experiments, all shot vertically to the target surface, have been conducted using steel and Gibeon iron meteorite targets as proxies of metal-rich asteroids (27, 28).Dry versus hydrated glassy basalt and crystallized dunite samples have been used as projectiles to mimic the diversity of asteroid materials, i.e., (carbonaceous) primitive or.

hypervelocity impact conditions is a very difficult and financially expensive task. The design process of multi-material armor systems therefore requires predictive numerical models for describing the response of UHMWPE composites under shock loading. In this paper a.

We can measure the velocity of the impacting projectile in a hypervelocity impact test using several different techniques. Other tools are also leveraged to ensure a quality test. After a hypervelocity impact of a sphere onto a thin plate, shock wave propagates in the sphere and plate materials.

As illustrated in Fig. 1, the shock wave is quite different with that caused by plate impact obviously, because of the geometry of the shock wave should not be described simply with planar wave. The Hypervelocity Impact Symposium (HVIS) is a biennial event organized by the Hypervelocity Impact Society that serves as the principal forum for the discussion, interchange, and presentation of the physics of high- and hypervelocity impact and related technical areas.

Hypervelocity Lower Limit. At present, most of documents [2, 3] defined the velocity that semispherical crater appears as hypervelocity according to experimental and Zukas [] suggested that the compressibility could not be neglected if the impact velocity is 3~12 km/r, it is only a rough evaluation.

Jing [] regarded the value corresponding to atomization appearance. The book includes comprehensive overviews on basic classes of problems in high-speed penetration mechanics.

This is a indispensable reference guide for scientists, engineers, and students specializing in the field of high-speed and hypervelocity penetration mechanics.

Hypervelocity impact: proceedings of the symposium, San Antonio, Texas, October [Charles E Anderson; United States.

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.;]. This book provides the readership with the basic principles of impact cratering, of radar remote sensing, and of the TanDEM-X mission.

It addresses the updated terrestrial impact crater record with more than high-resolution maps, supplemented by geological descriptions and a plethora of field photographs for most structures. The Hypervelocity Armor made its first appearance in in the eponymous Iron Man: Hypervelocity #1 by Adam Warren and Brian e Tony Stark's own intellect, the armor was actually derived from technology he had taken from villains.

Analytical power-law relationships were derived to predict transient crater dimensions, such as volume and diameter, from projectile features, such as diameter, density, and velocity. Because of the high speed, the kinetic energy of a hypervelocity impact is very large.

An impact of this type would be more like an explosion. As an example, a 1 centimetre sphere moving at 10 kilometres per second has an impact energy corresponding to the explosive force of a hand grenade. The strong shock waves that are generated from hypervelocity impacts compress, heat, and ionize the affected media and produce a plasma at the site of impact.

The plasma formation process is predominately an effect of impact velocity and can persist across impactors of all sizes and masses. Hypervelocity impact experiments were done with a two-stage light gas gun to study the plastic deformation of metallic plates.

Cylindrical Lexan projectiles were fired at A36 steel target plates with a velocity range of km/s. Experiments were designed to produce a front side impact crater and a permanent bulging deformation on the back.

Hypervelocity is very high velocity, approximately over 3, meters per second (6, mph, 11, km/h, 10, ft/s, or Mach ). In particular, hypervelocity is velocity so high that the strength of materials upon impact is very small compared to inertial stresses.

Thus, metals and fluids behave alike under hypervelocity impact. Extreme hypervelocity results in vaporization of the impactor. Hypervelocity Impact (HVI) During andthe Johnson Space Center's White Sands Testing Facility in Las Cruces, New Mexico conducted hypervelocity impact tests on the space shuttle wing leading edge.

Hypervelocity impact tests were conducted to determine if Micro-Meteoroid/Orbital Debris impacts could be reliably detected and located using simple passive ultrasonic methods. The effect of viscosity in hypervelocity impact cratering by R.

MacCormack,AIAA edition. Keywords: Space debris, Satellite, Honeycomb structure, Hypervelocity impact. INTRODUCTION: Now-a-days, Honeycomb Sandwich Composites are widely used in man-made satellites, aircrafts, rockets and other aerospace industries as they serve dual purpose; one is to provide structural stiffness and other is to protect spacecraft from hypervelocity impact of space debris [1].

Equations that quantitatively describe these phenomena are obtained through a regression of hypervelocity impact test data. These equations characterize observed penetration phenomena as functions of the geometric and material properties of the impacted structure and the diameter, obliquity, and velocity of the impacting projectile.

Understanding high-pressure material behavior is crucial to address the physical processes.The largest hypervelocity gun launcher was it's namesake predecessor, the High Altitude Research Project (HARP) in the 's. That gun was made by welding two 16 inch battleship guns in series, and was able to fire kg at m/s [1] using a guncotton charge.Geochemical arguments have shown that tektites have been derived by hypervelocity impact melting from terrestrial upper crustal rocks, most likely sediments.

The contents of Be in tektites are evidence for a derivation of tektites from surface rocks, thus precluding an origin from greater depth in the crater.
