The objective of this study is to formulate a simple, rational model for estimates of the penetration depth of rigid long rods through materials susceptible to microcracking. The proposed is based on the target resistance estimated using the particle dynamic simulations. All material parameters of the model can be identified and measured in laboratory. The accuracy of this simple model is found to be satisfactory.
