Explosive with metal lined cavities

Keywords: Jet formation


The jet formation by hemispherical and trumpet liners have been explained by a simple extension of the hydrodynamic theory of jet formation by conical liners. The various phenomenon relating to jet formation and penetration have been correlated. The modified theory of penetration provides an accurate description of the variation of depth, velocity and time of penetration with stand off and nature of target material.
