Possibility of computer simulation of functioning of the shell-forming charges with aluminized explosives when developing prototypes of ammunition
Semi-empirical methods for developing prototypes of shell-forming charges of the SADARM type are considered. Limited possibilities of these methods are shown for the cases, when in order to improve a ratio of the power of action to the ammunition resistance against striking effect, the explosive charges made of the aluminized explosives are used. The equation of state of detonation products taking into account kinetics of oxidation of the aluminum additives is offered, which is adapted for using in computer simulation of functioning of shell-forming charges. Examples of results of calculations are given, which demonstrate the possibility to improve functional characteristics of shell-forming charges by replacing traditional high-brisance explosives by low-porosity aluminized explosives with the lower shock-wave sensitivity.
