In designing armor, materials high in hardness, strength, and toughness have traditionally been sought, since common sense would dictate that such materials should be most resistant to attack by a projectile.
Penetration of homogeneous same all of the way through , ductile bends, stretches, and tears elastically iron and steel plates, either made for construction or for armor, is a rather complex subject because the metal acts differently when it is very thin compared to an impacting projectile's diameter, when it is of intermediate thickness, and when it is very thick. Finally, I have recently discovered that the elasticity of the homogeneous plate material as measured by the percentage of its original length that a test sample will stretch under a slowly-increasing tensile load just prior to snapping in two, termed the "Percent Elongation," is important in some cases, though my understanding of this is not as complete as I would like it to be. My computer program M79APCLC is primarily based on the results of extensive testing and comparative analysis of a single standard projectile and single standard armor material done at the U.
