Abstract:

A two-stage light gas gun incremental interior ballistic formalism is presented, along with a FORTRAN IV computer program that utilizes the system. Typical input and output data, both plotted and tabular, are included. A standard conventional gun ballistic analytic approach is coupled to a mathematical model of the light gas chamber. Correlations of the mathematical model and computer predictions to experimental device firings are demonstrated.
