Abstract:

The HULL hydrocode is used to predict the shock attenuation within a non-initiating explosive target following thin flyer plate impact. The attenuation relationship between the flyer plate thickness and the initial velocity is investigated. Agreement between HULL predictions and a simple theoretical model is provided. The HULL results may be employed to predict the maximum depth within which initiation may occur.
