The objective of this study is to correlate the decrease in the ballistic resistance of a high hardness armor (HHA) steel, made in Brazil, with microstructural changes due to ballistic impact. The results suggest that this decrease is associated with the appearance of adiabatic shear bands (ASB) with higher hardness than the original material, which introduce cracks and thus decrease the ballistic resistance of the steel.
