Abstract

Due to their low density, high structural strength and energy absorption capacity, aluminum alloys are
frequently used in lightweight armor systems such as aeronautics applications, offshore platforms, ship
components, bridge decks, etc. This wide application area considering behavior of materials subjected to high
velocity impact load increases the importance of the investigations about developing analytical solutions to
determine the failure mechanisms and penetration depth caused by high velocity impact.
In this study, an exponential equation was proposed that can be used to determine the penetration depth of the
2024 aluminum alloys of T351 condition. Comparing the analytical results with the results of previous
experimental study which used the 9 mm Parabellum bullets, it was determined that equation proposed
efficiently model the penetration depth of the AA 2024 T351 plates under impact load at velocity level in
experiments.
