The paper introduces the results of numerical simulation of the functioning of shaped charges, whose liners are made of different materials. As a result of their functioning, these charges form high-speed elements. Typically, liners for such charges are produced by the cold stamping technology. An alternative method for producing the liners is metal spinning. Moreover, a spin formed liner is expected to have higher physical and mechanical properties compared to a stamped liner made of the same material and having the same geometrical parameters. To reveal the patterns of molding high-speed elements from stamped and spin formed liners, the action of shaped charges comprised of steel or copper segmental liners of small bending, was simulated numerically using the apparatus of continuum mechanics. The influence of the liner manufacture method was taken into account by varying the values of the physical and mechanical characteristics of the liner material. The design parameters of the simulated charge, with the exception of the liner bending, during the calculation study remained unchanged and corresponded to the parameters of the currently used samples. Following the numerical experiments results, the study shows that the elements molded from spin formed liners are less likely to become fractured while being formed and are also more integral (continuous) in comparison to the elements molded from stamped shaped charge liners.
