Abstract

Composite armor plate for protection from projectiles, which contains at least one layer of rod-shaped elements (3.5) which are arranged in rows next to one another in the plate such that their longitudinal axes are essentially parallel to the plate plane and parallel to one another, with one row at least two in the axial direction has successive rod-shaped elements and the joints between the rod-shaped elements within a row are arranged offset in the axial direction with respect to the joints of at least one adjacent row.

Description

  • The The invention relates to a composite armor plate for protection from projectiles with the features of the preamble of claim 1.
  • Composite armor plates which consist of a composite of several materials are in themselves known. Often Composite armor plates are constructed such that between two plate elements filling materials or filling elements are introduced, which are then encapsulated with a pourable mass become.
  • The DE 1 578 324 describes such a plate, being used as filling elements balls or cylinders made of a hard ceramic material. The cylinders are arranged in rows in the plate in a plurality of interrupted layers or layers, ie their longitudinal axes are substantially parallel to the plane of the plate and parallel to each other, wherein the cylinders of one layer with respect to the cylinder of the other layer are arranged offset transversely to their longitudinal direction. The cylinders are further spaced apart using a plurality of layers of spacer material such that each layer of spacer material is alternately wound over and under the cylinders in their respective locations.
  • These Arrangement of the filling elements However, has the disadvantage that, especially in modern, high-hardness Bullet cores, especially in the case of many hits at close range, an early break can occur.
  • task The invention is based on the prior art, a composite armor plate such to make it an elevated one Protective effect with a small basis weight causes.
  • The Invention solves the task with the features of the characterizing part of the claim 1. Advantageous developments are described in the dependent claims.
  • The consists of composite armor plate according to the invention from at least one layer of rod-shaped elements. As a rod in the The meaning of the invention is every body viewed in which the ratio of overall length to maximum diameter is at least 1. According to the invention The elements not only line up next to each other but are also in axial direction within a row of one layer in a row arranged. Here are the joints, which due to the axial succession arrangement of the elements arise, with respect to the joints at least one adjacent row arranged offset in the axial direction. The Advantages of the invention will become apparent from the denomination of the elements, wherein the resulting joints are arranged offset because Thus, the attenuation caused by the joints by the adjacent Elements mostly is compensated. The joints can both regarding the joints of a neighboring row of the same position as well as with respect to Grooves offset an adjacent row of an adjacent location be arranged.
  • Around to increase the protective effect of the composite armor plate can advantageously several Layers of the rod-shaped Elements in the composite armor plate be present. Furthermore, the Layers be arranged such that the rod-shaped elements of a layer in terms of the rod-shaped Elements of the adjacent layer in a direction perpendicular to the longitudinal axis the rod-shaped Elements are arranged offset.
  • The rod-shaped Elements can have different cross sections. For example, the Majority of rod-shaped Elements as a cross section a shape similar to a circle or a Ellipse or a section of such a shape. Of Furthermore, the plurality of rod-shaped elements may be in the form of a cross-section have a polygon or a section of such a shape.
  • From of special importance for the protective effect of the composite armor plate is the embodiment the faces the rod-shaped Elements. In particular, the protective effect against projectile cores is to optimize it from particularly hard and heavy materials it of additional benefit, especially in the area of the faces the elements a shock absorption provided. This can be done by using a beneficial Geometry arise. The faces can in a plurality of the rod-shaped Elements as a flat surface accomplished be this, either perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the rod-shaped elements or can stand at an angle to this. The faces can also concave arched be executed where advantageously the ratio of the maximum diameter smaller to the radius of the face curvature than 0.6.
  • Of Further, the plurality of rod-shaped members may be at one end have concave arched faces, where the ratio the maximum diameter to the radius of the face curvature smaller is 0.6 and at the other end have corresponding convex end faces.
  • Further may be the majority of rod-shaped elements conical outward directed faces possess, whose tips are rounded or cut off. at Rounded tips can be the ratio of the radius of the rounded Tip to the largest cross section be less than 0.25.
  • Of Further, the plurality of rod-shaped members may be at one end conical outward directed faces possess, whose tips are rounded or cut off and am other end corresponding, tapered inward faces exhibit. For rounded tips, the ratio of the Radius of the rounded tip to the largest cross section smaller than 0.25 be.
  • Further may be the majority of rod-shaped elements faces which are roughened or provided with structures, the one flat Concern of two opposite faces prevent.
  • Between the faces of two adjoining bar-shaped elements can shock-absorbing Be incorporated materials, in particular in the form of films, threads or Granules, in particular of metals, plastics, fiber materials or of elastomeric materials.
  • at Use the composite armor plate to protect against larger caliber it may be appropriate this shock absorption also on the lateral surface expand and there also between the rows of rod-shaped elements shock-absorbing To introduce materials, in particular in the form of films or granules, in particular of metals, plastics, fiber materials or of elastomeric materials.
  • The rod-shaped Elements can Furthermore, at least partially with at least one shock-absorbing Coating, in particular of metals, plastics, fiber materials or elastomeric materials.
  • The rod-shaped Elements can be surrounded by a potting compound, in particular, the room between the rod-shaped Be filled with elements of the potting compound with at least a continuous outer finishing layer connected is. The potting compound can be made of plastic, in particular made of polyurethane, epoxy resin, polyester, rubber or one other elastomeric material consist. The back of the composite armor plate can consist of layers that have shock-absorbing properties have and can have a high tensile strength.
  • The Composite armor plate can self-supporting in a frame construction to be protected Object (e.g., a vehicle) or on a structural body Armored steel or light metal, with shock absorbing intermediate layers can be used or air gaps between the structure housing and composite armor plate provided can be.
  • The Composite armor plate can on the side facing the projectile and away Layers or plate-shaped Have elements between which arranged the rod-shaped elements are. It is also possible, that the composite armor plate for weight reduction only on the Projectile facing Side has a finishing layer or that the potting compound at least on one side of the composite armor plate is open, wherein it can optionally be provided with a paint.
  • At least one side, in particular that facing away from the approaching projectile Side, may consist of at least one solid layer of fiber material, in particular made of aramid, glass fiber, polyamide or carbon fiber, or at least a soft shock absorbing layer, in particular of foams or made of elastomeric materials.
  • The material of the rod-shaped elements is also of crucial importance for the protective effect of the composite armor plate. Thus, at least one rod-shaped element of a ceramic material, made of alumina ceramic having an Al 2 O 3 content of 92- 99.99% of a high-hardness material, in particular boron carbide, silicon carbide, silicon nitrite or titanium triborate, or a hard metallic Material, in particular of hardened steel, aluminum, titanium or a sintered material consist.
  • The overall length the majority of rod-shaped Elements can range from 13 mm to 300 mm. Furthermore, can the majority of rod-shaped Elements a relationship the total length to maximum In the following, exemplary embodiments of a composite armor plate according to the invention with reference to the accompanying drawings explained in more detail.
