Abstract : This report investigates the effects of nose shapes on simple oblique and yawed oblique impacts. For simple oblique penetration there is a significant amount of rod tip erosion. Novel shaped noses can be designed which minimize the amount of mass lost in erosion and which create efficient craters sufficient to allow passage of the upstream portion of the rod. Gains brought about by novel rod tip designs are not as evident in the yawed oblique impact case as in the simple oblique…
