Why tungsten heavy alloy is adopted in military?

Time:2015-10-28 16:09     Author: admin

     Nowadays, tungsten heavy alloy is increasingly adopted as the raw material to make parts of military products, such as bullet, armor and shells, 
shrapnel head, grenade, hunting gun, bullet
 warheads, bulletproof vehicles, tank panzers, cannons, firearms, etc. A major use for tungsten heavy 
alloy is in kinetic energy penetrators, where they are in direct competition with depleted
 uranium (DU). Recent investigations conducted at the Army 
Research Laboratory show that DU’s
 superior properties resulted from its ability to localize shear during ballistic penetration events. Therefore, it was
 argued that if localized shear can be imparted to tungsten heavy alloys, these
 alloys would exhibit penetration performance matching that of depleted
 uranium (which had
 become an environmental problem).
