This paper gives complete analysis of the local failure of steel target plate subjected to shot impact by using three-dimensional dynamic finite element analyses in which provision is made for the simulation of impact loads, plasticity and cracking of steel target. An assessment is made for perforation. Three computer programmes NONSAP, MARC and OBAID have been used for comparison. The analytical results are well compared with those available from a model test.
