Experimental Study of the Destruction of Polymethylmethacrylate and an Aluminum Alloy by an Ice Granule Flux

Abstract

The response of solids (TOSP-1 polymethylmethacrylate, D1 aluminum alloy) to multiple collisions with 1-mm ice granules with an average velocity of about 100 m/s is experimentally studied at low climatic temperatures (–40°C). When ice granules collide with a target, 100-μm fragmentation particles are found to form and cause the destruction of the target surface.
