Testing of Body Armor Materials for Use by the U.S. Army--Phase II

This Phase II report provides detailed assessments of the methodologies used for testing body armor, such as the validity of using the column-drop performance test for assessing the part-to-part consistency of a clay body to the level of precision identified in Army test procedures. More detailed discussions of the issues surrounding the testing of body armor, both present and future, will be presented in the final Phase III report.
