The latest achievements in the area of development, design, modeling and evaluation of ceramic armor and armor systems are included in this volume. This is a must-have book for ceramic and materials scientists, engineers and students working with the development, manufacturing and study of ceramic armor. It also is for those who design and evaluate armor systems and for those who select and use armor products. Selected Contents: Ceramic Armor Materials Development; Fracture Mechanism of Armor Ceramics and Composites 8Ballistic Testing Study and Ballistic Performance of Ceramic Armor and Armor Systems.
