Abstract:This thesis focuses on shaped charge simulations using a hydro-code called ALE3D. It gives background on shaped charge research and motivation for the project itself along with information on a shaped charge experiment that took place at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. A baseline simulation is created to mock the experiment and compare results. Next, a series of simulations are conducted varying parameters such as HE, liner, and target material and analyzing output data. Then a second proposed shaped charge experiment with different geometry and materials is simulated. Finally a newer topic of asymmetrical defective shaped charges is explored by means of simulations. It also advances on shock states for a hyper-elastic solid using the Blatz-Ko equilibrium relations and general conservation laws. Basic Rankine-Hugoniot relations for longitudinal isotropic motion are determined. To further this topic, a study of anisotropic materials was conducted using ALE3D.
