Investigation of Ignition of Liquid Propellant in Reservoir in Regenerative Liquid Propellant Gun Trials
Keywords: Combustion ignition, Regenerative liquid propellant guns (RLPGs), Internal ballistic processes
AbstractIt is important to understand the internal ballistic processes for the development of regenerative liquid propellant guns (RLPGs). A 30 mm RLPG test fixture was developed and firing trials were conducted to study the performance of the gun. During the trials, sometimes, combustion ignition in the reservoir took place resulting in substantial damage to the injection piston. This paper highlights the possible causes of this combustion and offers suggestions. regarding improvement in the design. An elaborate instrumentation set-up which could pinpoint the specific conditions leading to failures is suggested.
