    Notes: We investigate the interaction of a constant-velocity, long-rod penetrator with detonating high explosive. An analytical flow-field model extending the Birkhoff model of inert target penetration is developed and compared with numerical simulations. We propose a rod-disruption model, discuss the effect of enhanced "anomalous" rod erosion on penetration history, and estimate the maximum coherent penetration depth. The model is extended to idealized stretching jet penetrators and its predictions are compared with jet-high-explosive (HE) interaction experiments. We predict a strong dependence of the high-explosive penetration on penetrator diameter and a very high "virtual" HE density in agreement with experimental observations. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
