dc.description.abstract The Department of Defense (DoD) has an operational requirement to predict, quickly and accurately, the depth of penetration that a projectile can achieve for a given target and impact scenario. Fast-running analytical models can provide reliable predictions, but they often require the use of one or more dimensionless parameters that are derived from experimental data. These analytical models are continually evolving, and the dimensionless parameters are often adjusted to obtain new analytical models without a true understanding of the change in characteristics of material flow across targets of varying strength and projectile impact velocities.
