Abstract:

This report presents some recent work on improving a simple, semiquantitative, muzzle flash predictive methodology developed by Carfagno, in his Handbook on Gun Flash. The improved methodology was then applied to evaluating several possible solutions for reducing muzzle flash for a new 8-inch propelling charge. Later experimental results showed satisfying agreement with the earlier predictions.
