A discussion of dynamic strain waves in large caliber cannon tubes and an extensive analytical treatment of this phenomenon was previously presented at the Fifth U.S. Army Symposium on Gun Dynamics. This report considers the implications these dynamic strains had on the development of a particular cannon tube, including measurement techniques which evolved during tests at the proving ground, predictive design methods which have since become standard analytical tools, and potential problems which have been identified for future study.
