Abstract : This publication represents a compilation of technical papers concerning analyses, design, measurement, and automation of gun dynamics. The authors represent a cross section of the scientific and technical community, including universities, industrial and government research laboratories. Partial Contents include: Experimental determination of bore evacuator hole flow coefficients, tube to cannister; Pressure distribution and pumping force of discharging bore evacuator holes; Validation of projectile transient response models for the study of pressure oscillations in guns; Experimental measurements of the blast pressure profile for 20-mm perforated muzzle brake designs; Investigation of shock ignition in the injector ports of an annular (bore evacuator) reservoir; Tracking of maneuvering targets using estimators. Ballistics, Barrel vibration, Dynamics, Precision, Controls, Target acquisition, Accuracy.
