Computational Ballistics 2007 is the third international conference in this successful series, which provides a forum for the presentation of new ideas and advanced developments in this field of study. Computational Ballistics, in spite of its specific objectives, has a wide range of applications and, as a science, relates to a great variety of phenomena which occur from the moment an object or projectile is fired until its effects are observed in a target.

Ballistic studies include applications as varied as the study of the structural and control behaviour of rockets and communication satellites; bird strike effects on commercial aircraft, terrorist attacks and automobile crackworthiness modelling. Many of the basic problems of ballistics are similar to those in other fields of applications, such as combustion, heat conduction, in-flight structural behaviour, trajectory related issues, contact, impact, penetration, structural response to shock waves and many others.

The developments in Ballistics in the last few decades are closely related to the advances in Computational Mechanics but in spite of this, there are currently no open conferences on Computational Ballistics other than this meeting.
