EUGEN TRANA, FLORINA BUCUR, ADRIAN N. ROTARIU ON THE FRAGMENTATION OF EXPLOSIVELY-DRIVEN PLASTIC/STEEL LAYERED CYLINDERS
While over the past century fairly extensive work has been carried out on explosively-driven metallic envelope fragmentation, as the development of explosive materials and warhead configurations continued, the issue under consideration is still topical. The current paper aims to investigate the fragmentation characteristics of explosively-driven steel cylinders when double layer envelopes are used. Mott’s approach was modified in order to account for such particular configuration (layered envelope). Several tests in a simplified type procedure were performed aiming to confirm the theoretical approach.
