THE ANALYSIS OF PROPERTIES OF PLATERS USED FOR THE STRUCTURAL-BALLISTIC SAFETY SHIELDS IN MARINE VESSELS
Journal of KONES Powertrain and Transport
Some selected parameters of steel for structural-ballistic shields (OKB) used in the Navy vessels have been presented. The standards for steel to be used for ballistic shields are established by safety standards institutions and committees. There has been made an analysis of steel used for OKB of the vessels. The bullet-proof of the platters has been carried out on the appropriate position. The results of bullet-proof test of selected platters have been presented. The analysis made allowed to
... s made allowed to select the platters used for the structural-ballistic safety shields in marine vessels and give the direction for further research determined by contemporary threats of both military and terroristic nature. To produce the platters there have been used two types of armoured metal sheet which had been milled to flats made of the basic steel and which can be applied in shipbuilding. The structural-ballistic platters have had the form of flats with the total thickness of 8.5-9.2 mm. The prepared structural-ballistic platters have been technological processed in order to increase the degree of their strength. There have been also presented mechanical and technological properties of platters after heat treatment. The results of the bullet-proof have been presented in graphs form defining the dependence between the hit force and time. The effects of fire of specimen made of platters, by 7.62 mm cal. bullets with the proper speed have been seen on photographs.
