Abstract:

A set of interior ballistic equations is derived for a reactionless type of launcher of the Davis Gun type in which two masses are ejected from a common chamber. Based on ballistic analysis of the Davis Gun launcher it appears feasible that a high performance type Davis Gun launcher could be effectively used from a vehicle.
