In fact, the ceramic in the perforated tiles is largely intact on the strike face with a localized damage zone and some minor cracks around the edges of the tiles. A close-up of the impact zone is provided in Figure 6. The solid tile shows a somewhat regular pattern of radial and ring cracking. The wide and medium spaced ceramics each show a random pattern of fissures, and the close spaced perforations limit the crack propagation on the surface significantly. It is clear from the figures that the perforations reduce cracking.
