The interaction of an Abrikosov vortex lattice with randomly placed strong pinning centers (produced experimentally with heavy-ion irradiation) has been modeled with a particularly simple and powerful expression. Excellent quantitative fits to the dissipation in ion-irradiated (Formula presented) are found for (Formula presented) over ranges of 10 000 in resistance and 60 in field. The three free parameters are within a factor of 2 of expectations.
