Abstract:

The propellant gas convective heat transfer problem is divided into several subproblems Generation of thermochemical properties for any chosen propellant analysis of transient, inviscid, compressible flow through the gun barrel analysis of unsteady, viscous, compressible flow with arbitrary pressure gradients on the bore surface analysis of transient heat diffusion through single or multi-layer gun tubes analysis of unsteady free convection and radiation around the gun tube and control of a sequence of procedures due to the nature of unknown and transient boundary conditions and also due to coupling between the problems.
