Deformation and Flow of a Bulky Body Penetrated by a Deformable Projectile

Developed herein is a large deformation continuum mechanics theory of hydro-elasto-plasticity. The theory is able to predict with the aid of the finite element technique the transient response of materials under low, medium, or high velocity impact. Geometric, kinematic, material, and interfacial nonlinearities are considered.
