Abstract : The design of an experimental facility for the study of drag resistance in stationary and fluidized gun propellant beds is described. It establishes the capability for the simulation of flows at five times the Reynolds number and in tubes of four times the cross-sectional area heretofore reported. The design makes possible for the first time, at Reynolds numbers encountered in a ballistic packed bed, unlimited running times. In addition, transient flow conditions can also be simulated.
