US Army Research Laboratory Materials Center of Excellence Dynamic Behavior of Noncrystalline and Nanocrystalline Metallic Systems: July 2010 — June 2011 Annual Report

Report No. ARL-CR-0768
Authors: James W Mc Cauley
Date/Pages: March 2015; 42 pages
Abstract: This cooperative research program emphasizes collaborative research between The Johns Hopkins University and the US Army Research Laboratory toward well-defined common goals: the understanding and development of advanced lightweight materials for vehicular protection, focusing on high-strain-rate/high-stress testing, determining the operative deformation and failure mechanisms, and developing relevant models to allow for materials design. This report summarizes the research carried out during 1 July 2010 through 30 June 2011 in the following areas: 1) nanomicro aluminum research thrust, 2) nanostructured magnesium research thrust, 3) dynamic failure and damage mechanisms research thrust, 4) modeling of body-centered-cubic nanostructures research thrust, 5) high-rate loading of piezoelectric ceramics research thrust, 6) administration, education, training, and collaborative structures, and 7) list of theses, publications, and presentations from the various thrust areas.
