Part of the Advanced Topics in Science and Technology in China book series (ATSTC)


The 2D simulation of normal penetration has been described in Chapter 12. The same problem is re-investigated through 3D simulation using the model proposed by Zhou at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, which is the combination of the unified strength theory (Yu, 1998; Yu, 2004) and the experimental data.
