The impact response of steel plate is an important factor in many industries and
products used everyday. This includes the automotive, construction and appliance
industries that use steel plate in safety applications. This paper will report the findings
of both physical and theoretical testing in three conditions; free, fixed and perforated.
The testing parameters were further refined to thin flat plate in order to gain a specific
understanding into the mechanisms that occur.
