Key Features: The only book on the market that describes the important features of high explosive, case and liner geometries for oil-well perforators, Discusses the two-phase flow model for calculating the mix between the air and the liner, which can be used for thermohydraulic design of light water and breeder reactors, Discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the Lagrangian or Eulerian methods, and how their weaknesses may be remedied.

Devoted to the subject of shape charge design using numerical methods, this book offers the defense and commercial industries unique material not contained in any other single volume. The coverage of the Lagrangian and Eulerian methods as well as the equation of state provides first hand help to engineers working on shape charge problems.

The book includes detailed descriptions of oil-well perforation not available from any other sources and, coupled with the material flow physics discussed in Chapters 2 and 3 and Appendix B, readers can design the fuel rod configurations for a nuclear reactor core. The equations of state and the constitutive models in Chapter 8 are among the best material models currently available.
