Analytical equations are presented herein to predict the penetration of semi-infinite metallic targets struck normally by long rods at high velocities. The analysis is based on energy balance where the kinetic energy loss of a long rod is related to the energy dissipated by the plastic deformations in the target, the energy consumed by the long-rod itself and the kinetic energy remaining in the ejected rod debris. The present analytical equation is found to be in good agreement with the experimental data for a wide range of impact velocities.
