Computation of In-bore Velocity-time and Travel-time profiles from Breech Pressure Measurements
Keywords: Breech pressure measurement, gun propellant, breech pressure, gun system design, internal ballistics, gun
AbstractThe paper describes breech pressure measurement and also discusses the computation of velocity-time and travel-time profiles in the barrel from the instantaneous breech pressure values. The computed value of velocity at the shot out instant is obtained as the muzzle velocity. A close correlation is observed between the muzzle velocities measured by a radar and those computed from pressure-time data by this method.
