Article
High Explosive Mortar bombs are used on the battlefield for destroying the manpower, non-armoured equipment and shelters. The paper describes an original experimental and numerical approach regarding the potential threats caused by the detonation of 120 mm HE mortar bombs. The evaluation of the bomb effect presumes the fulfillment of experimental t...

The armor assures the protection of a combat vehicle and is crucial for the crew survival, but it affects the size, shape, and weight of the vehicle, as well as its mobility and combat ability. The research comprises an experimental and numerical study regarding the ballistic penetration and perforation phenomena of an Iron-Armco steel plate. The p...

The increase of the ammunition destructive effects has led to the development of various armor types to achieve a high degree of protection for the personnel. The purpose of the paper is to study the impact of a shaped charge hit on a cage armor protection system. Experiments were carried out for a deep understanding of the phenomena occurring at t...

Vehicle Cone Index (VCI) is the most representative parameter to establish the vehicle capability to overpass the difficult conditions generate by the soft soil. Its importance is emphasized by the fact that has been recently included in TOP 02-2-619A. According to this test operations procedure, VCI can be both estimated and measured. Originally m...

One of the most present threats for military vehicles in today combat actions is the Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). The explosive threats complicate the process of vehicles design and increase the costs of proving. The current paper is concerned with the development of a numerical tool that can be used in the early design phase of a new armor...

During last decade a series of theoretical studies revealed the high pressures generated in highly porous soft materials imbibed with fluids and subjected to compression, with possible application to impact damping. The mechanism, named eXPoroHydroDynamic (XPHD) Lubrication, combines the resistance to flow inside the porous matrix with its variable...

In order to design and build ballistic protection structures containing composite materials, a multitude of experiments performed in dedicated ranges are required. In the frame of limiting the costs demanded by the final result, numerical simulation is used as a tool to estimate the outcome of a certain experiment without performing it first. Using...

Today industrial and technical fields are more and more dependent on automation and autonomous systems. The idea of replacing human intervention with robotics or self-guided structures is preferred especially in the domains requiring repetitive actions and a high quality of the work. Regarding industrial applications, Autonomous Ground Vehicles - A...

The article presents the results of a numerical study regarding a primary explosive detonation in aquatic medium. The main purpose of this study is the evaluation of underwater explosion effects in order to conceive an effective attenuation method. Since the development of mass destructive guns, explosive materials have been the most effective mean...
