A new optimization theory for the end-initiated linear shaped charge
Brown, George Elliott
MetadataShow full item record
An exposition of the two existing analytical approaches to the end-initiated linear shaped charge is made. After a theory is put forth relating optimization to increased energy transfer at increased standoff distances, this effect is linked to the dispersive nature of the jet mass. An analytical design approach is then formulated that combines elements of both existing models. The object of this approach is to integrate experimental data into a mathematically definitive analysis. A theoretical link is then developed between the dispersive nature of the jet and the design input parameters, thus completing the optimization model.
