Armor Ceramics

When properly combined with other materials, ceramic and glass materials can exhibit ballistic penetration resistances significantly higher than conventional monolithic armor materials. This track covers Materials Characterization, Modeling / Testing and Evaluation / Quasi-Static and Dynamic Behavior.

Ceramic armor can be used to protect vehicles as well as individual personnel, and dates back to 1918. Ceramics are known to be some of the hardest materials, and unlike materials such as Kevlar (which uses its fibers to "catch" the bullet), ceramics break the bullet. The strongest and lightest ceramic is boron carbide. Ceramic plates or trauma plates are used as inserts in soft ballistic vests. It is hard enough to ensure that a bullet or other weapon is deflected, meaning the armor material pushes out on the bullet with nearly the same force with which the bullet pushes in, thus preventing the armor from being penetrated.
