Study of the effectiveness of corundum and boron carbide ceramics in hybrid protection systems
- 1 Institute of Metal Science, equipment, and technologies “Acad. A. Balevski” with Center for Hydro- and Aerodynamics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia, Bulgaria
- 2 Inner Mongolian Metal Material Research Institute, Ningbo, P.R. China
High-temperature synthesis of corundum and boron carbide ceramics was performed and the physical and chemical indicators of the obtained products were determined. Their suitability as a components of individual protection systems is assessed by ballistic tests.
