Abstract : During explosion of charge of explosive having on its surface a deep recess covered by a thin metallic facing, there occurs collapse of facing with formation of a cumulative jet and rammer. Results are given of investigation of explosion of charges with small depth of recess. It was determined that in this case the facing turns inside out and is destroyed, with formation of a directed flow of its elements. There is experimentally investigated motion of these elements; there are determined conditions under which there can be applied the theory of one-dimensional motion, to directed throwing of bodies; there is considered unidirectional and biodirectional throwing. There is determined quantitative relation between parameters of the charge and characteristics of the flow. (Author)
