Abstract:

A procedure is formulated which calculates the interior ballistics properties of guns by numerically integrating the partial differential equations appropriate to the dynamics of the propellant gas. The equations which describe the interior ballistics are one-dimensional along the gun barrel, assuming a uniform cross section.
