The questions of application of the LS-DYNA finite element analysis package for describing the interaction of a spherical projectile and a massive metal obstacle are considered. Based on a comparison of the results of numerical simulation with experimental data, a qualitative possibility has been shown to determine the magnitude of the dynamic hardness of the obstacle material.A simulation of the collision of a spherical impactor and a massive metal barrier shaped as a cube is performed. Data are obtained on the penetration of the striker into the barrier.Using the simulation curve, the values of the dynamic hardness of the obstacle were restored and a comparison was made with their experimental values. The qualitative correspondence is shown.
