Award Amount:
$50,000.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Dr. Ta-ming Fang
Abstract:
Acoustic liners can be used to attenuate pressure oscillations in regenerative liquid propellant guns in order to increase the lifetime of the gun and minimize the impact on the projectiles being fired. the design of this type of acoustic absorber is made difficult because of both the extreme… More
