Not having the perfect contact between the bullet and plate #explicit dynamics
I am trying to do an explicit dynamic analysis of a bullet hitting a composite plate. I designed the composite plate using Ansys ACP(pre) and then transferred the file to an explicit dynamic module. but whenever I am doing the analysis I am not getting the accurate result. "the bullet tip just toches the plate". I tried to change the analysis settings.
# changing the end time
# changing the no. of cycle
# increasing the mesh size
# increasing the initial velocity of the bullet
# making bullet closer to the plate
even after this I am not getting accurate results i.e either bullet penetrate the plate or give significant deformation to the plate.
