Abstract:

This volume consists of the technical papers presented at the Tri- Service Gun Tube Wear and Erosion Symposium. It was the first Tri-Service Symposium hosted at the newly formed Army Armament Research and Development Command ARRADCOM. The objective of this symposium was to review the work done under the sponsorship of the three services on the understanding and control of gun tube erosion since the previous one on this subject, which was held at the Watervliet Arsenal, Watervliet, N.Y. in February 1970. Another objective was to bring to the attention of the scientific community, some new problems which have arisen as a result of the requirements of increased range, muzzle velocity and firing rates in some of the advanced high performance barrels.
