CRC/FT | 2014 | ISBN: 1466564377 1466564393 9781466564398 9781466564374 | 601 pages | PDF | 12 MB
This book covers exterior ballistics, exploring the physics behind trajectories, including linear and nonlinear aeroballistics, and focuses on the effects of projective impact, including details on shock physics, shaped charges, penetration, fragmentation, and wound ballistics.
Reviews and integrates the fundamental science and engineering concepts involved in guns and ammunition.
Uses straightforward, easy-to-read style, and careful development of complex topics.
Shares insights rooted in the experience of renowned experts, many associated with the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) and International Ballistics Society.
The field of ballistics comprises three main areas of specialization: interior, exterior, and terminal ballistics. This book explains all three areas, offering a seamless presentation of the complex phenomena that occur during the launch, flight, and impact of a projectile.
