Abstract:

A fast, easy method of calculating energy deposition during shaped charge jet penetration was developed to assist in jet impact testing of energetic materials. Particularly, the profile of energy deposition along the penetration path is obtained. The ability to generate these profiles for every test setup allows test personnel to quantitatively analyze their data with a minimum of effort and clearly distinguishes how the stimulus varies when different shaped charges are substituted during testing.
