Abstract:

Compressed gas guns are used at the Harry Diamond Laboratories HDL to test fuzes and fuze components. Calculations were made to describe the performance of both existing HDL gas guns and planned future HDL gas guns. In the latter case, chamber diameter and chamber length were varied to evaluate their effect on projectile velocity. These results permit selection of an optimum chamber geometry.
