Currently, it appears that there is a lack of understanding related to the role of SSF, in the two-phase behavior of the deceleration history, which is an issue discussed recently in the impact dynamics field. This paper analytically and numerically focuses on the effect of SSF on the projectile deceleration characteristic of concrete-like targets. Firstly, the penetration process according to the two-phase feature of the projectile deceleration is revised, where analytical results indicate

Furthermore, a series of numerical simulations are conducted to understand the role of SSF more clearly. Simulation results show a similar conclusion to the analyses of the two-phase penetration process; at the range below a certain critical striking velocity, adding friction can reproduce the experimental data; when exceeding the critical striking velocity, the simulated results without considering friction are closest to the experimental data. Hence, it could be gained that the role exchange between the SSF and the dynamic term contributes to the two-phase penetration behavior for concrete-like materials. This indicates that the sensitivity of SSF to the penetration process is one of the factors driving the two-phase feature.
