Three different plate configuration: Reverse Ballistic Direct Ballistic Reverse Ballistic Experiments and Models A series of experiments performed to assess the dynamic response of circular monolithic steel and steel-polyurea bilayer plates to impulsive loads.
A convenient technique to enhance the energy absorption capability of steel plates and to improve their resistance to fracturing in dynamic events, is to spray-cast a layer of polyurea onto the plates.
Since polyurea readily adheres to metallic surfaces and has a short curing time, the technique may be used to retrofit existing metallic structures to improve their blast resistance.
We have examined the effectiveness of this approach, focusing on the question of the significance of the relative position of the polyurea layer with respect to the loading direction; i. The experimental results suggest that the polyurea layer can have a significant effect on the response of the steel plate to dynamic impulsive loads, both in terms of failure mitigation and energy absorption, if it is deposited on the back face of the plate.
And, remarkably, when polyurea is placed on the front face of the plate, it may actually enhance the destructive effect of the blast, promoting rather than mitigating the failure of the steel plate, depending on the interface bonding strength between the polyurea and steel layers.
These experimental results are supported by our computational simulations of the entire experiment, employing realistic physics-based constitutive models for the steel DH, in the present work and polyurea.
Direct Ballistic Experiments and Models The response of monolithic steel plates and steel-polyurea bilayer plates to impulsive blast loads produced in direct ballistic experiments, focusing on the deformation and failure modes of the plates.
Using high-speed photography, the deformation and fracturing of some of the plates are also captured. In addition, the total force acting on the steel plate is measured as a function of time in a few cases. The experimental results suggest that the presence of polyurea on the back face opposite to the load receiving side of the steel plates can enhance the energy absorption of the plates and help to mitigate their failure.
On the other hand, when polyurea is placed on the front face load receiving sideit will magnify the initial shock effect and promote failure. These experimental results are paralleled by our numerical simulations of the entire experiment, employing physics-based models for the DH steel and polyurea.

5-Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) 1 has been of interest since the last decade of the 19th century. In Düll7 and Kiermeyer8 working independently, published a method of synthesis and chemical reactions of the compound, which they called “oxymethylfurfurol”. When carbamoyl phosphate accumulates in mitochondria (urea cycle) it can leak out into cytoplasm and participate in pyrimidine synthesis (Ornithine Transcarbamoylase or OTC deficiency).
Hence, accumulation of orotic acid and orotic aciduria is seen in. Abstract. Segmented polyurethanes have been used extensively in implantable medical devices, but their tunable mechanical properties make them attractive for examining the effect of biomaterial modulus on engineered musculoskeletal tissue development.
