Abstract

Abstract The optimal shape of an earth penetrating projectile is investigated. Based on the Discs-Model, earlier developed by the author, the interaction pressure is expressed as function of the nose shape. The instantaneous resistive force is minimized to yield and optimal shape function. The optimal shape is found to be dependent on a single parameter of velocity, deceleration and medium properties.
