Bullet Impact Velocity

      Hi everyone.


      I am currently working on bullet impact on the target. As you all know, after the interaction with the target of the bullet, the speed of it begins to fall.  In my work, the bullet had 820 m/s before impact. However, I don't know the exact function of the time. I just wrote the value and selected constant speed. As far as I understood, that bullet never loses its speed. But I want to have real conditions. Is there any way to make the speed of the bullet related with target strength. Or did I make the true thing?  Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      Muhammed,


      In this case, you are explicitly specifying the velocity to stay constant. So it does.


      If you want it to decrease after impact, you might want to specify it under the Initial Conditions. Just right-click on Initial Conditions>Insert>Velocity. This should get you what you are looking for.

      Thank you so much. Also, I have another question about it. From where can I see the residual velocity after bullet leaving the target?

      You can right-click on the solution and Insert>Deformation>Total Velocity or Directional Velocity. You can scope it to the projectile as needed. Alternatively, you can click on Solution and then on Worksheet from the toolbar on the top, this will give you access to all the available results.
