Ballistics, as a science, has a wide meaning and is present in many aspects of our everyday lives. Terminal ballistics, perhaps its most important branch, focuses on the study of the interaction between the munition and target, such as in car crashes and bird strikes on aircraft, and the consequent effects. This involves the study of impact, overall and microscopic structural resistance and behaviour, and integrity.

Covering a broad scope of topics related to ballistics, this book includes selected papers from the International Conference on Computational Ballistics 2002 (EBMEC).
