This paper demonstrates the application of both numerical simulation and empirical equation in predicting the penetration of a concrete target by an ogive-nosed projectile. The results from the experiment performed by Gran and Frew are used as a benchmark for comparison. In the numerical simulations a 3.0-caliber radius-head steel ogival-nose projectile with a mass of 47 kg is fired against cylindrical concrete target with a striking velocity of 315 m/s. In the simulation the smooth particles hydrodynamics SPH-Lagrange coupling method is applied to predict the maximum depth of penetration. For calculation of DoP and response of projectile the SPH-Lagrange method can give satisfactory results.
