The manuscripts contained in this issue of Ceramic Engineering and Science Proceedings were selected from among the more than seventy presentations at the Armor Ceramics Symposium. The discussions are divided into three sections: Modeling and dynamic behavior, Transparent materials, and Opaque materials. Conducted during the 36th annual International Conference on Advanced Ceramics and Composites (ICACC), this event is one of the premier global conferences for the latest developments in the fabrication, characterization, and application of ceramic materials to meet the needs of the military, police, and other public defense, security, and protection organizations.
