This paper presents numerical analysis result of forming characteristics of Ta explosively formed penetrator (EFP) according to various material models and their values. Dynamic material properties of Ta were measured with static tensile testing machine and Hopkinson pressure bar tests. We used AUTODYN hydrodynamic code to simulate these phenomena. We used three material models, such as Von-Mises model, linear hardening model and Johnson-Cook model. We also compared the numerical results with the EFP forming test data. The numerical results show that material model and its parameter are so important to predict the shape of formed penetrator and Von-Mises model predicts the shape of the formed liner most well. We also analysed the influence of liner thickness on EFP formation using the verified numerical model.
