Abstract : The goal of this project was to develop a W-based amorphous-crystalline composite for penetrator applications. The composite was to have high strength, toughness, abrasion resistance, tailorable density, and a propensity for shear localization. Our year 3 tasks, as laid out in the project proposal, were to: 1) Consolidate amorphous or nanocrystalline powder blends 2) Mechanical testing 3) Ballistic testing
