How to set realistic ballistic impact conditions
I'm not sure if this question is better suited in the materials forum, but I am trying to model a realistic bullet impact simulation in explicit dynamics. I have successfully run the simulation several times on various surfaces. I have used Johnson-Cook parameters and specified material properties. However, I am not sure if Ansys automatically accounts for kinematic strengthening and other stress/strain effects on the materials. Any insights would be appreciated as to how much information I am required to input to maximise accuracy of the damage and plasticity models.
(Note: I do not have any self-conducted experimental data to make a comparison to).
