Structural Research of a New Firing Mechanism for Pneumatic Cannon
A firing mechanism with associated pipe for a pneumatic cannon was developed. it can make the pressure of the chamber reach the full pressure immediately in the launching process. The dynamics analysis of the control pin were carried out and kinematics equations of projectile in the launching process were developed. The strength and impact process of the accompanying tube were confirmed by the computation analysis results.
