The damage caused by solid projectiles in the elastic and elastic/plastic target response regimes has been characterized and analysed. Semi-empirical methods for establishing the relative importance of the target and properties on the impact damage have been derived, based on quasi-static indentation fracture characterization schemes and the quantification of the impact damage observations.
