We suggest an engineering method that allows using the known (e.g., from the experiments) data on the depth of penetration of several high-speed impactors for predicting the depth of penetration for the impactors having different shapes. The suggested method is based on the conjecture that a complete description of the impactor-shield interaction model for determining the depth of penetration is redundant.
