Interaction of Explosive Shocks with Airborne Cylindrical Targets of Elliptical
Keywords: Cylindrical target, Airborne
AbstractA theoretical model to find pressure-space history around a cylindrical target of elliptical cross-section has been presented for assessing the damage by warheads exploding in the vicinity of an airborne vehicle. The energy hypothesis has been used to find the attenuation law from a point explosion. The Whitham-Bryson and Gross theory for shock interaction has been modified to take into account the finite strength of incident shock. The theoretical results have also been compared with Heilig's experimental results.
