Abstract:

A computer study was made of the penetration by a copper rod, simulating a shaped-charge jet, into a steel plate backed-up by a semi-infinite medium. The parameters included impact velocity, steel plate thickness, and the material comprising the semi-infinite medium. The computer results were compared with a model of penetration based on Bernoullis steady-state incompressible-flow equation.
