Production of shear-formed liners for rotating shaped charges is of interest since it causes the jet self-spinning effect, which drastically affects the penetration process. A novel four-part methodology for calculating the performance parameters of such charges is suggested. First, the liner strained state is related to the feed rate and mandrel angular velocity during the shear-forming process. Second, based on the polycrystal plasticity theory, a methodology for determining the liner's plastic anisotropy parameters depending on its strained state is realized. Third, a general dependence of the jet angular velocity on the liner plastic anisotropy parameters is obtained. The fourth part presents the methodology of shaped charge performance calculation with respect to spinning effects. The results of calculations performed according to the suggested methodology are in good agreement with experimental data. Calculations also show that the penetration depth increases 9% to 15% compared to a spinning shaped charge with a drawn liner (i.e., without the self-spinning effect) when the self-spinning jet rotates oppositely to the shaped charge. When they rotate in the same direction, penetration depth decreases critically (more than 50%).
