Simulated and Experimental In-wall Temperatures for 120 mm Ammunition
Keywords: Thermocouples, Numerical modelling, Surface temperature predictions
AbstractBore and chamber surface as well as subsurface temperature prediction are made for the US Army M256 120mm chromium-plated cannon firing M865 M829 and DM13 cartridges. The surface temperature predictions are validated by comparison with other numerical modelling results, while the subsurface temperature predictions are compared directly with experimental measurements made by in wall thermocouples. The surface temperature predictions fall in line with other numerical estimates, and, in general, the simulated probe temperatures at each axial location are within the circumferential and round-to-round variation in the experimental probe tempretaures.
