Abstract: Linear Shaped Charges (LSCs) have been assumed to function in the same manner as Conical Shaped Charges (CSCs) in the published literature that describes a metallic jet process for penetration. However, based on the facts that the LSC liner is composed of flat surfaces instead of the curved cone shaped liner of a CSC and the LSC detonation propagation is perpendicular to the penetrator projection direction, the approach to investigate the penetrator formation process of LSCs should be examined from a different perspective. Because there are fundamental differences between CSCs and LSCs in the formation of a jet, the cutting performances would be under different regimes. As a preliminary investigation, in this paper, we report a numerical observation of the LSC jetting properties using AUTODYN®.
