Title: Scaling Symmetries in Elastic-Plastic Dynamic Cavity Expansion Equations Using the Isovector Method

Cavity-expansion approximations are widely-used in the study of penetration mechanics and indentation phenomena. We apply the isovector method to a well-established model in the literature for elastic-plastic cavity-expansion to systematically demonstrate the existence of Lie symmetries corresponding to scale-invariant solutions. Here we use the symmetries obtained from the equations of motion to determine compatible auxiliary conditions describing the cavity wall trajectory and the elastic-plastic material interface. The admissible conditions are then compared with specific similarity solutions in the literature.
