Abstract:

The purpose of the subject program was to improve and optimize the Calspan artillery models. In particular, the models were examined and reformulated to include the Lennard-Jones G-12 potential as the equation of state and to use parameters generated by the BLAKE code as input. Other improvements were made and anomalies observed in previous calculations were eliminated. Comparisons between computer simulations and experimental results from an M2A2 105mm howitzer involving eight special lots were fair but some deviation exist. It is evident that code inputs and representation of burn rate require further improvement. Author
