    • Abstract:
      Armour steels are the most understood family of armour materials following more than a century of research and development. They are also the material of choice for most ground-based, military vehicle platforms. However, what grades of steel make the most effective armours? Are they all capable of being used as structural armours? How do they fail? This chapter details the metallurgical factors governing ballistic performance, from alloy chemistry to the effects of possessing an orthotropic microstructure. High strain rate effects are also well covered, as are fabricability, cost and availability. Specific armour failure mechanisms like adiabatic shear and brittle fracture are detailed as well as a number of over-riding structural engineering requirements. The chapter covers standardised grades for both cast and rolled steels, and provides tables of armour specifications and ballistic standards. Current research grades like super bainitic steels, TWIP and TRIP steels, are also included as well as the benefits of perforated armour steels.
