Abstract:

BORE EROSION AND DAMAGE ARE SIGNIFICANT PROBLEMS THAT LIMIT THE USEFUL LIFE OF RAILGUNS AND ARE BASICALLY RELATED TO OPERATING CURRENT DENSITY. A RAILGUN CONCEPT IS BEING INVESTIGATED THAT IS EXPECTED TO REDUCE CURRENT DENSITY BY INCREASING THE RAIL CONTACT AREA. WHEN SUCCESSFUL, RAILGUN BARREL LIFE WOULD BE EXTENDED TO A MUCH HIGHER NUMBER OF SHOTS BETWEEN REFURBISHING/REPLACEMENT. MANY SHOTLIFE IS ESSENTIAL FOR PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF RAILGUNS IN WEAPON SYSTEMS.
