Explosively Formed Penetrator
EFP Detonation Simulation
The explosively formed penetrator (EFP) is an important conventional weapon in which an explosive is used to simultaneously form a projectile and propel it. The development and optimization of the EFP is greatly assisted through the use of finite element simulations. An example simulation is shown here to illustrate the use of the DYNA3D finite element code in optimization of an EFP design.
