Cumulation and spallation with local thermal shocks in metals disks

  • 17 Accesses


The contribution of two mechanisms of cumulation to the process of spallation of metal disks is studied numerically. The dimensions of the spallation zones are estimated and their location is determined as a function of the plastic and viscous properties of the material.
