Jet profile estimations over different standoffs for shaped charges and jet projectile charges,a computational approach
Shakeel Abbas Rofi and Fenglei Huang


In this paper, using a computational approach, we interpolated and presented jet profiles over different standoffs for two broad classes of copper liners namely, Shaped Charges (SCs) and Jet Projectile Charges (JPCs). The results show that this approach can produce the stretching jet profiles at any time instance or at any standoff for SCs and JPCs with good accuracy. Therefore, this approach has the meaningful application in saving experiments and providing desktop information needed by scientists and engineers to design and develop various warheads without doing laborious simulations.
