Static Model of a Rail Launcher
The paper presents the analytic and simulation model of the rail launcher in a static state. The force acting on the projectile and the magnetic flux density were investigated. The mathematical description of the force acting on the projectile was derived. The simulation model was build with help of the COMSOL Multiphysics software. The computer simulation results were compared with the results obtained in the analytic way.
