Abstract
Abstract An exact solution is presented for the long rod penetration equations first formulated by Alekseevski in 1966 and independently by Tate in 1967. This analytical solution allows a faster and easier solution of the penetration equations, since stability considerations associated with any numerically integrated solutions are avoided. Additionally, an analytical solution provides greater insight into the penetration mechanism than a comparable numerically integrated solution.
