Abstract:

The detonations of a high explosive in contact with a metal plate can cause the plate to spall or fracture. In order to quantitatively describe the phenomena a one-dimensional model of the H. E. plate system is assumed. The problem is then analyzed in terms of the interactions of compression and rarefaction waves. Quantitative predictions of spall using the one-dimensional model are compared to experiment and the agreement is found to be good.
