Abstract

The development of regenerative liquid propellant guns (RLPGs) needs due consideration of numerous interdependent parameters that affect its performance. To help in this task, computer simulation was undertaken to predict internal ballistics of a conceptual liquid propellant gun. The expected pressure and other important parameters are documented which serve as an aid to the hardware, design of the regenerative liquid propellant guns.
