Abstract:

The report presents a metallographic method by which one may reconstruct the linear-shaped-charge collapse process. From the microstructure of recovered elements of collapsed charge liners much can be learned about the deformation processes that have occurred. The microstructures of some typical linear-shaped-charge fragments are illustrated, and some of the more interesting structural details and their implications are discussed. Author
