Abstract:

A SIX-MONTH FEASIBILITY STUDY TO INVESTIGATE THE USE OF CERAMIC AND METAL MATRIX COMPOSITE MATERIALS FOR THE CONDUCTING RAILS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RAIL GUNS IS PROPOSED. CERTAIN ELECTRICAL, MECHANICAL AND THERMAL PROPERTIES OF THE MATERIAL WILL BE DETERMINED AND MICROSTRUCTURAL FEATURES OF THE COMPOSITE EVALUATED. SAMPLE RAIL MATERIALS WILL BE EXPOSED TO THE PLASMA ARC ENVIRONMENTS FOUND IN RAILGUNS TO EVALUATE ARC EROSION RESISTANCE.
