The empirical models currently used in the design of small arms interior ballistics systems are reviewed. The development of propellant deterrent technology and closed bomb burning-rate techniques is discussed. Propellant grain size distribution and averaging techniques, temperature sensitivity, and energy losses are also covered. The current use of two-phase, nonsteady flow methods to describe interior ballistics systems is reviewed. It is concluded that each of the models performs a different task in the proper design of a weapon system.
