considered a projectile penetrating a box which contains water either partially or fully. A standard model was developed and validated against the experimental data. Then, each parameter was varied individually to determine its effect during the HRAM event. The parameters considered were the water filling level in the box, its wall thickness, projectile impact velocity, projectile mass, impact angle, and projectile shape. The effect of individual parameter was compared, and the effects of different parameters were compared. Then an attempt was made to determine the combined effects of multi-variables. Even though the results and discussion are for the specific geometric and material data used in this study, the present findings are expected to provide valuable insights to the qualitative characteristics on the HRAM event.
