By Paul J. Hazell

Highlights fresh Advances in Materials/Armour Technology

As lengthy as clash exists on the earth, safeguard applied sciences will continually be popular. Armour: fabrics, thought, and Design describes the prevailing and rising defense applied sciences which are presently using the most recent advances in armour structures. This e-book explains the idea, purposes, and fabric technological know-how features of contemporary armour layout as they're utilized in relation to automobiles, ships, body of workers, and constructions, and explores the technology and know-how used to supply defense opposed to blasts and ballistic assaults. It covers fabrics applied sciences utilized in safety; addresses the procedure results of including blast-wave shaping to cars, in addition to the impact at the human physique; and descriptions ballistic trying out techniques.

Takes a glance at How Armour Works

The ebook discusses ceramics for armour purposes; obvious armour; and metals for armour functions (including aluminium alloys, magnesium alloys, titanium alloys and steels); in addition to composite armour structures; explosive reactive armour platforms with regards to protecting relief suites for autos; and wound ballistics. furthermore, the writer lists greater than a hundred references for complicated examine and extra reading.

Armour: fabrics, thought, and Design introduces quite a few armour applied sciences, outlines glossy threats and hazards appropriate to safety expertise, and aids readers in enforcing protecting constructions that may be utilized in conflict, clash, army zones, and different comparable environments.
