Abstract:

This report documents the progress during FY75 in the analytical and experimental investigation of the behavior of a liquid propellant during loading into the breech of a liquid propellant. A one-dimensional model was constructed for the unsteady behavior of the assumed incompressible liquid. An experimental loading system was designed and fabricated to test the model and to identify critical design constraints. The analytical model supported by the experiments, was used to conduct parametric studies and to provide guidance to designers of liquid propellant gun loading systems.
