Abstract:

The report details the results of an investigation into the stress distribution in the head of a 7.62 mm NATO cartridge case using a three dimensional photoelastic stress freezing technique. Three variants of the round were examined and it was found that a slightly increased internal radius in the interior of the cartridge case significantly reduced the stresses in the head of the case.
