Abstract:

The report describes an analysis of two more possible designs for slide block breeches. The open jaw design is a possible lightweight configuration and the 90 degree U would be useful in some cases where space is limited. The variation of fillet stress along the fillet is reported for all the block cavity fillets along with stresses at other points of interest. The lateral deflection of the sides of the breech ring is also reported. Modified author abstract
