Title (EN) MULTI-LAYER ARMOR HAVING LATERAL SHOCK TRANSFER
(FR) BLINDAGE MULTICOUCHE A TRANSFERT DE CHOC LATERAL
Abstract:
(EN) Armor includes a projectile impermeable material layer and a shock stiffening layer. The shock stiffening layer has opposing shock stiffening sublayers wherein each shock stiffening sublayer has a plurality of shock stiffening sublayer elements. The plurality of shock stiffening sublayer elements of opposed shock stiffening sublayers are interdigitated. The armor includes a foam layer wherein the shock stiffening layer is positioned between the foam layer and the projectile impermeable material layer. The plurality of shock stiffening sublayer elements of opposed shock stiffening sublayers may momentarily or permanently fuse in response to a projectile’s impact. The shock stiffening layer spreads the energy laterally, thereby effectively mitigating the transfer of kinetic energy from a ballistic projectile directly to a region to be protected.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte à un blindage, qui comprend une couche de matière imperméable aux projectiles et une couche de raidissement aux chocs. Ladite couche de raidissement aux chocs possède deux sous-couches de raidissement aux chocs opposées, chacune desdites sous-couches possédant une pluralité d'éléments de sous-couches de raidissement aux chocs. La pluralité d'éléments de sous-couches de raidissement aux chocs des sous-couches de raidissement aux chocs opposées sont entremêlés. Le blindage selon l'invention contient une couche de mousse, la couche de raidissement aux chocs étant placée entre la couche de mousse et la couche de matière imperméable aux projectiles. La pluralité d'éléments de sous-couches de raidissement aux chocs des sous-couches de raidissement aux chocs opposées peuvent fusionner momentanément ou de manière permanente en réponse à l'impact d'un projectile. La couche de raidissement aux chocs propage l'énergie latéralement, ce qui atténue efficacement le transfert de l'énergie cinétique d'un projectile balistique directement vers une zone destinée à être protégée.
