Title

A preliminary investigation of the blade formation and cutting process of the linear shaped charges

Abstract

"Linear Shaped Charges (LSCs) have been assumed to function in the same manner as Conical Shaped Charges (CSCs) in published literature on the subject. Much work has been done on CSC for military purposes, but there is limited information about the mechanics of LSCs...A previous research project performed at the University of Missouri at Rolla (UMR) using LSCs to penetrate a reinforced concrete walls has shown that the blade formation process of LSCs is not the same as that of CSCs' jetting. In addition, a small portion of the bottom part of the LSC blade was uniformly missing. After close investigation, this phenomenon was named the 'Halo effect', and a follow-up study was performed to describe the mechanics of this effect.
