dc.descriptionAbstract: Shaped charges can be used to penetrate solid materials, or to enhance the penetrating capabilities of kinetic energy projectiles. This report reviews the design and performance characteristics of conventional shaped charges and it describes the development of binary shaped charges that remain non-explosive until shortly before use. The technical review outlines the basic principles of shaped charges and gives an idea of the penetration depth and hole diameter for typical charges firing into various target materials. The effects of standoff distance, cone diameter, cone angle, cone thickness, cone material and explosive type are described. Special attention is given to the penetration of frozen szround and ice. Current development work on binary shaped charges is discussed, and results of recent tests on permafrost penetration are given.-
