Abstract
WE ARE PROPOSING TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING AXIALLY INDUCED MAGNETIC FIELDS TO LIMIT SHAPED CHARGE JET BREAKUP. WE WILL DETERMINE THE MAGNETIC FLUX REQUIREMENTS FOR LIMITING THE JET BREAKUP OF 66 MM VIPER SHAPED CHARGE DEVICES. WE WILL DESIGN AND FABRICATE A STATIC FLUX COIL TO AXIALLY INDUCE FIELDS FROM 10-30 TESLA (T) ALONG THE AXIS OF THE FUNCTION JET. THE EFFECT OF BREAKUP WILL BE QUANTIFIED VIA FLASH X-RAY TECHNIQUES.
