In the current study. we have sintered boron carbide without use of any sintering additives to produce theoretically dense and fine-grained compacts with various grain sizes. '2. " were investigated in the literature. To evaluate its effectiveness under dynamic loads, high strain rate experiments using split Hopkinson pressure bar, plate impact and projectile impact experiments were conducted. '^"^ Therefore, in the current investigation dynamic indentation experimentsI6 were conducted to evaluate the mechanical behavior of boron carbide under high strain rate conditions.

A major shortcoming of many studies is their limitation to commercial grades of ceramic armor where the investigation of one influencing parameter (composition hardness ) is obscured by variations of other properties (grain size density, Young's modulus). However. there are also examples of investigations with laboratory-designed samples that did enable full control of all parameters but revealed, nevertheless, surprising results such as a higher ballistic strength of the armor with the lower hardness, lower Young's modulus, or lower compressive strength.
