Tungsten Alloy Long Rod Projectile

A tungsten alloy long rod projectile is any object thrown into space (empty or not) by the exertion of a force. Although any object in motion through space (for example a thrown baseball) may be called a projectile, the term more commonly refers to a ranged weapon. Mathematical equations of motion are used to analyze projectile trajectory.

The long rod projectile material is the D17.6 tungsten alloy, ambient density 17.6g/cm3 and Brinell hardness number 406. The D17.6 tungsten alloy was used also in the time-resolved penetration experiments of Asderson Etal, who describe it as a sintered alloy with the composition 92.5%w,4.85%Ni,2.4%Fe,0.25%Co.

Tungsten alloy long-rod projectile in a wide range of velocity means that the initial impact velocity varies in a range from tens of meters per second to several kilometers per second. The tungsten alloy long rods maintain rigid state when the impact velocity is low, the nose of tungsten alloy rod deforms and even is blunted when the velocity gets higher, and the nose erodes and fails to lead to the consumption of tungsten alloy long projectile when the velocity is very high due to instantaneous high pressure. That is, from low velocity to high velocity, the projectile undergoes rigid rods, deforming non-erosive rods, and erosive rods.

Tungsten Alloy Swaging Rod for Tungsten Alloy Long Rod Projectile

The normal tungsten alloy rod after swaging, ultimate tensile strength and hardness would be increased greatly. The ultimate tensile strength of general tungsten alloy rod is 920 MPa, hardness is 25HRC. However, after swaging, the ultimate tensile strength can reach 1200 MPa, hardness is 35HRC. We could even control at 1400 MPa, 40HRC. This type of rod is one of our main products. Usually the composition of this kind of products is 92.5%WNiFe.
