Abstract
This program is to develop multi-layered,light weight armor alloys systems that offer improved fragmentation and armor piercing performance as compared to any other monolithic structures. Such alloys and laminated configuration will be developed by utilizing advanced computational techniques to assist in the development of complimentary alloys that would provide an optimal combination of hardness, strength and ductility.
