  1. 1. Impact of Metallic Projectiles on a Ceramic Target Surface : Transition Between Interface Defeat and Penetration

    Author : René Renström; Bengt Lundberg; Patrik Lundberg; Nils-Gunnar Ohlson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Engineering physics; Projectile; Cylindrical; Conical; Yield strength; Compressibility; Perfect flow; Self-similar flow; Interface defeat; Dwell; Teknisk fysik; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot hållfasthetslära; Engineering Science with specialization in Solid Mechanics;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to gain understanding of the load on flat target surfaces produced by projectile impact. Models are proposed from which upper and lower bounds can be derived for the transition be-tween interface defeat and normal penetration. READ MORE

  2. 2. Interface Defeat and Penetration: Two Modes of Interaction between Metallic Projectiles and Ceramic Targets

    Author : Patrik Lundberg; Bengt Lundberg; Charles E. Anderson Jr.; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Engineering physics; projectile; target; impact; interface defeat; penetration; tungsten; ceramic; replica scaling; Teknisk fysik; Engineering physics; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : Ceramics constitute an important group of low-density armour materials. Their high intrinsic strength makes it possible to design ceramic armour systems capable of defeating projectiles directly on the ceramic surface. READ MORE

  3. 3. Spectroscopic Studies of Isomers Produced in Relativistic Projectile Fragmentation and In-Flight Fission

    Author : Milena Mineva; Kärnfysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Projectile fragmentation; nuclear structure; isomeric states; lifetimes; production rates; Kärnfysik; isomeric ratios; Nuclear physics; Fysicumarkivet A:000; in-flight fission;

    Abstract : This thesis is based on a number of experiments performed at the FRagment Separator (FRS) at the Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung mbH (GSI) in Darmstadt, Germany, in which heavy-ion reactions at relativistic energies have been used to produce nuclei far from stability. In April 1999 projectile fragmentation of 208Pb at 1 GeV/nucleon was used to study so called K-isomers in the neutron-rich isotopes of Lu (Z=71) to Hg (Z=80). READ MORE

  4. 4. Exploring the Exotic Experimental Investigations far from Stability

    Author : Karin Markenroth; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cross sections; driplines; inbeam spectroscopy; 10; unbound nuclei; 8 B; 11; 17; longitudinal momentum distributions; breakup reactions; projectile fragmentation; resonances; 19 C; elastic resonance scattering; halo nuclei; 13 N;

    Abstract : The exploration of exotic nuclei is one of the most intriguing and fastest expanding fields in modern nuclear physics. In the extreme conditions of unsymmetric neutron-proton distributions and small binding energies many nuclear phenomena not encountered closer to stability have revealed themselves, often as a surprise to the nuclear physics community, the prime example being the development of halo structures as the binding energy diminishes.

  5. 5. Fragmentation cross sections: measurement, systematics and model developement

    Author : Chiara La Tessa; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; projectile total charge-changing cross sections; weak factorization; strong factorization; projectile partial charge-changing cross sections; heavy-ions; space radioprotection; nuclear fragmentation;

    Abstract : Man's attitude towards space exploration has been mainly limited by the health risk related to the exposure to the space radiation environment. Some components of the space field can be characterized by such a high flux to kill a man if directly exposed and in general, all space radiation constitutes a hazard for astronauts engaged in long-term missions.
