V. M. Mochalova, A.V. Utkin, V.E. Rykova, M. Endres & D.H.H. Hoffmann
The experimental study of shock wave compressibility and spall strength of an aramid fiber reinforced epoxy composite (textolite) for two fiber orientations was performed by the VISAR interferometer. The particle velocity profiles were obtained at velocities of the flyer plate from 0.65 to 5.05 km/s. The sound speed of textolite for the longitudinal direction is three times higher than that for transverse one, and as a result, the particle velocity profiles are different for two...
