Abstract:

The oblique impact of a shaped-charge jet is simulated by a plate-on- plate plane strain impact by the TRIDORF code operating in a two-dimensional, Cartesian mode. The effects of varying the thickness of the penetrator plate on penetration history, target hole size, pressure field history, and the bulge size on the back face of the target plate are examined. These impact phenomena were compared to the results obtained by running the TRIDORF code in a three- dimensional, Cartesian mode and simulating the shaped-charge jet impact by a bar impacting on a target plate.
