Abstract
FOR MANY YEARS, THE SURVIVABILITY/VULNERABILITY COMMUNITY HAS BEEN CONCERNED WITH THE ADVERSE IMPACT OF BALLISTICALLY-INDUCED HYDRAULIC RAM ON THE STRUCTURAL RESPONSE OF AIRCRAFT FUEL TANKS. THE NAVY WISHES TO DEVELOP COST-EFFECTIVENESS TEST APPROACHES, FIXTURE DESIGNS OR PANEL DESIGNS TO OBTAIN COMPARABLE BALLISTIC BEHAVIOR BETWEEN PANEL SAMPLES AND ACTUAL AIRCRAFT STRUCTURES. THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS AN APPROACH TO CARRYING OUT SUCH DEVELOPMENTS.
