The Interior Ballistic Research for Gas-Steam Launching System with Water Injection in Block


Article Preview

Gas-steam launching system with water injection in block can overcome the problem of horizontal or large-angle launching, and gets more and more value in recent years. Based on the characteristic of launching system, the model was built with several assumptions, which could provide reference and technique for developing the new launching system. And the generator result was verified by the experimental one. The interior ballistic characteristics were researched by calculation result under different deep and injection water mass conditions. The comparison of the simulation results and theory analysis indicates the model was rational and valid, and different launching deep and cooling water mass had effect on ballistics, more water can cool down the silo, but also brings more energy loss, and deeper launch needs more energy, so good design is required to fit the parameters demand in all respects.
