Abstract:

A computer parametric study of the 7.5 kms impact of a long, slender, copper rod on a steel target was made to obtain hole growth information. The rod radius was varied 1,3, and 9 mm and the target thickness was varied 7.5 and 37.5 mm. In addition to hole growth histories, penetration histories and pressure and particle velocity profiles along the axis of symmetry of the rod are presented. Author
