Paper Abstract

In this work the effets of fragmentation process on shaped charge jet penetration have been examined by means of X Ray cinematography (6 tubes). Visualizations of the emerging jet after target perforation show that : - the maximum penetration is produced by a completely fragmented jet - even at very little standoff an important part of the total penetration is produced by jet fragments - if the jet fragments are well aligned, the penetration process is not affected by the distance seperating them.
