Abstract:

Existing numerical models for regenerative liquid propellant guns involve major simplifications of the processes occurring during the firing cycle. To determine the adequacy of these assumptions, a model is compared with experimental measurements. The differences can be explained in terms of the injection of the fuel through the piston and the liquid accumulation in the combustion chamber. From the experimental profiles, input values are derived that can be used in the gun code and that better model the liquid injection and accumulation. Author
