Expert System for the Penetration Simulation
of 3D Trajectories
PS3D is designed to simulate the penetration of non-eroding projectiles into a variety of solid targets like concrete, sand, soil, aluminum, or steel. PS3D calculates a projectile’s three-dimensional trajectory, the penetration depth or the exit velocity.
Additionally, bending stresses / deformations and acceleration data are calculated in the PS3D analysis. This provides the information required to assess a possible failure of electronic components or or the penetrator itself.
PS3D can be used for penetration related applications in defense engineering:
Analysis of penetration performance and penetrator trajectory
Evaluation of penetrator structural integrity
Analysis of penetrator deceleration during penetration
Design and analysis of protective structures
PS3D applies several unique algorithms and models:
Structural model of the pojectile to calculate stresses and plastic deformations
3D acceleration and spin rate sensors
Force law model for concrete including the influence of aggregates and reinforcement
Extensive post-processing capabilities
