Abstract:

Knowledge of the resistance to projectile motion is a requirement for interior ballistic simulation models. The behavior of the projectile during the engraving process is of particular interest. This need has prompted the development of techniques designed to provide detailed measurements of projectile motion in this region. One such technique is described in this report.
