Front Cover
National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 1971 - Manned space flight - 17 pages
Test results are presented for the high-velocity impact of 11 mg, 6.4-millimeter-diameter polyethylene terephthalate disk projectiles fired into flexible composite wall panels. Test panels were composed of various flexible fabric, film, and foam materials including polyethylene terephthalate, nylon, fiber glass, fluorinated ethylene propylene, steel wire, rayon, fluoroelastomer, polyurethane, and neoprene. Test velocities ranged from 2.07 to 5.79 km/sec.
