Thin, layered, and semi-infinite targets have been impacted experimentally, and theoretical calculations performed by the DORF code for these same target impacts. The DORF code is a two-material, two-dimensional continuous Eulerian hydrodynamic code coupled with a rigid, perfectly plastic strength model. In addition, DORF9, a nine-material version of DORF, has calculated several of the impact experiments. The agreement is good between the theoretical calculations and experimental values for shock attenuation and projectile length loss.
