Abstract:

A review of the salient literature addressing the engineering design of muzzle devices is presented. Both theoretical and experimental techniques applicable to specific hardware items are discussed. The types of devices considered include muzzle brakes, compensators, blast deflectors, blast suppressors, and flash suppressors. The second volume of this report addresses specific gas dynamic theories which are applicable, but, in general, have not been utilized in the analysis of muzzle gas flow fields.
