Abstract
Truncated cones are used in low-speed penetration experiments to provide a non-zero force gradient at the start of penetration and eliminate position and/or bluntness errors which occur when sharply pointed cones are used. Three models are presented which approximate the effect of the flat tip on the resistance to penetration. Comparisons are made with the results of tests carried out on targets made of annealed copper and 65-S aluminum in the T6, T4 and 0 conditions.
