    liquid propellants. This is so because solid rockets are mechanically much simpler in principle than either guns or liquid-fueled rockets. Therefore, a solid rocket propellant must perform by chemical means many of the jobs that are performed by the hardware in guns and liquid rockets. texts All Books All Texts latest This Just In Smithsonian Libraries FEDLINK (US) Technology and Science Music, The objective of this project is to explore the feasibility of a liquid propellant traveling charge gun concept, which has been proposed as a means for improving the performance of high velocity guns.

    Bulk loaded liquid propellants are an artillery technology that was pursued at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory and U.S. Naval Weapons Center from the s through From: [email protected] (John Canning) Date: Sep 8 The concept of using a liquid propellant in guns is not a new one.   Actually, gasoline contains a lot more energy than gunpowder. There's a reason that the military pursued liquid propellant gun technology for almost 50 years. Only the advent of electromagnetic railguns ended research along these lines. Cartridges of powder propellant have a lot of other advantages however.

    The early forms of these new propellants were as extruded strands sometimes called cords, indeed, they were known generically as cordites. Otherwise they were spheres or flakes, the propellant powders, an example being ballistite. As the science of gun ballistics rapidly developed and these new propellants were used in large caliber guns, the geometries of the propellant pieces, or ‘grains.

There are two advanced technologies for firearms in GURPS Ultra-Tech. Liquid Propellant slugthrowers improves piercing damage by +1 per die (about 28%) with the boosted velocity version, and there’s a low velocity option that cuts damage in half, but we don’t care that much [ ].

application of a liquid propellant gun ir a combat vehicle. The study examines the potential and demonstrated benefits of liquid propellants for the military.

The study uses the solid propellant guns technology as the baselnie, to conduct a comparison of liquid propellant guns. Abstract. The development of gun propellants from to has been a broad endeavor. Researchers worldwide have examined every facet of energetic materials involved with gun propulsion in efforts to improve both safety and performance.

A propellant or propellent is a chemical substance used in the production of energy or pressurized gas that is subsequently used to create movement of a fluid or to generate propulsion of a vehicle, projectile, or other propellants are energetic materials and consist of a fuel like gasoline, jet fuel, rocket fuel, and an lants are burned or otherwise decomposed to.

There is really on one good book on LP guns, and my copy disappeared in the mail when I sent it to another THR member. Look for "Liquid Propellant Gun Technology" by Klingenberg, et al Be warned it is a very expensive book (i.e. $+). Solid propellant guns, known since the 14th century, are still being investigated, although this concept represents a relative mature technology.

Thus any progress is predominantly a refinement of existing techniques. Comparatively, liquid propellant gun research and development address a rather new technique and invoke some improvements over.

Therefore, hydrogen is typically the first choice; however, other propellants like methane can be used. While this technology does appear to provide higher velocities, the main drawback with gaseous or liquid propellants for gun systems is the difficulty in.

characteristics of propellants. In propellant. Solid and liquid propellants are substances that undergo rapid combustion, producing gaseous products.

Black powder was used as a propellant in guns and rockets until the 20th century, when double-base gunpowder (40 percent nitroglycerin, 60 percent nitrocellulose) came into use.

For gun propellants where the pressures are higher, the Abel equation of state is usually employed: p(v-a) = RT where a is a constant. By constructing the Rankine-Hugoniot curve in the lower pressure region in this way, the volume, temperature and composition of the combustion gases can be calculated.

E.F. Skelton, A.W. Webb, in Encyclopedia of Physical Science and Technology (Third Edition), Guns. Propellant guns, originally developed for military applications, provide a special example of the explosive-driven flyer plate. These also provide a somewhat more controlled mechanism than the explosive techniques described above.

Current research topics include solid rocket propellants, gel propellants, gun propellant systems ranging from classic propellant powders based on nitrocellulose through to foamed propellants, investigations into aging, stability and compatibility, and the .French "solventless" propellant designated as SD was produced during the s for a few guns including the mm and British SC, French SD appears to have been developed from a study of German RP C/12, as it was in the form of a single tube grain and the composition was similar in its proportions of nitrocellulose, nitroglycerin and centralite.Whether it will be possible to manufacture layered gun propellants effectively and efficiently using this technology remains to be demonstrated.
