During the last 10 years shaped charges with spherical liners have aroused great interest in research and development because their application in special munition results in an increase in performance. The present report presents measured characteristics of shaped charges with hemispherical liners. A short explanation of the jet formation process and the typical jet characteristics as a function of charge geometries are given, and the effect of liner materials is described. Additionally, the influence of various explosives and wave shapers have been studied. The important feature of such shaped charges is that the projectiles are associated with a high terminal ballistic effective part of the liner mass, which is of particular interest for application.
