Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume provides a one-stop resource, compiling current research on ceramic armor and addressing the challenges facing armor manufacturers. It is a collection of papers from The American Ceramic Society s 32nd International Conference on Advanced Ceramics and Composites, January 27-February 1, 2008. Topics include novel materials concepts for both vehicle and body armors, transparent ceramics for impact resistance, and more. This is a valuable, up-to-date resource for researchers in industry, government, or academia who are working with ceramic armor.

Book News Annotation:

This volume collects 19 papers from Ceramic Armor Symposium of the 32nd International Conference and Exposition on Advanced Ceramics & Composites, held January/February 2008, which brought together modelers, experimentalists, processors, testers, fabricators, manufacturers, managers, and ceramists to discuss ceramic armor. The papers are presented in sections on transparent glasses and ceramics, opaque ceramics, and novel evaluation and characterization. Some examples of specific topics discussed include mesomechanical constitutive relations for glass and ceramic armor, optimizing transparent armor design subject to projectile impact conditions, advances in ballistic performance of commercially available Saint-Gobain sapphire transparent armor composites, instrumented Hertzian indentation study of two commercial silicon carbides, quantitative characterization of localized amplitude variations in silicon carbide ceramics using ultrasound c-scan imaging, portable microwave scanning technique for nondestructive testing of multilayered dielectric materials, and automated nondestructive evaluation system for hard armor protective inserts of body armor.
