Abstract:

Existing balloting codes do not consider all of the forces and interactions that contribute to balloting of hypervelocity projectiles. This effort will result in the definition of a complete mathematical model and the design of an appropriate, user friendly, computational model to predict hypervelocity projectile balloting. Arrow Tech, whose engineers are well known for the development and applications of state-of-the-art analysis techniques (including balloting codes), will subcontract with Dr. Courter of Lousiana State University (LSU), who is a recognized expert in hypervelocity ranges and gas dynamics, to develop the required models. This proposal will describe the background and expertise Arrow Tech / Dr. Courter will apply towards combining current balloting and gun dynamic analysis techniques with hypervelocity gun gas dynamic and projectile wear analysis methods into a comprehensive, practical, cost effective engineering tool for hypervelocity range facilities.
