Developing Energy Absorbing Composites to Counter High Velocity Impact
IDGA: How can aspects of velocity be defeated?
KN: If you look at the dynamic equation of motion and equilibrium, you will see that damping is the most important factor in order to defeat the velocity. Therefore, we are building an advanced network of dampers and stiffeners in order to slow down and then stop the high velocity impact effect.
It is also the first law of thermodynamics--that is, the conservation of energy principle. We convert kinetic energy to thermal and strain energy....
