Liquid Propellant Gun Technology is the first book to provide a comprehensive and systematic up-to-date treatment of this technology. The book discusses early approaches to gun design, such as bulk-loaded configurations and the use of regeneratively injected bipropellents, through very recent developments in the field of large-caliber and electrothermal-chemical systems. In addition, hybrid and electrothermal propulsion systems are covered in the text, as are modern approaches to electric gun development such as electrothermal gun technology. This book is intended for professional engineers and scientists in the fields of gun propulsion, ballistics, and combustion, and for physicists, chemists, and students--undergraduate through postgraduates--interested in these fields. The main objective of the book is to describe, in depth, the results of various experimental and theoretical research from 1950 until the present in the field of liquid propellant propulsion. Even today, most of the information concerning liquid propellant gun research is still scattered among military, international, and private files. One benefit of using this text is that the reader can find information, previously available only through many sources, synthesized in one book. Liquid Propellant Gun Technology is, therefore, the most complete resource for both practitioners and novices in the ballistic and propulsion fields.

The present study has formulated and explored experimentally the feasibility of two concepts for controlling the interior ballistic process in medium caliber, bulk-loaded liquid propellant guns (BLPG). The general nature of ignition and combustion of liquid propellants (LP) in bulk-loaded LP guns-as currently understood-was reviewed to clearly indicate problems that need to be addresses in achieving successful combustion stability, progressivity, and reproducibility in such systems. According, several features were identified with the potential for modifying undesirable characteristics and for achieving various degrees of control of the combustion process in BLPGs. Based on these features, two concepts were formulated to control the BLPG interior ballistics process by gun chamber geometry to control the combustion. These concepts were evaluated in live gun test firings and found to be favorable in achieving significant degree of combustion control. The investigation recommends that further exploration and development of these concepts be undertaken to confirm feasibility, to demonstrate effective control and repeatability of the ballistic process and muzzle velocity, and to provide preliminary BLPG concepts for weaponization.

The 155-mm regenerative liquid propellant gun (RLPG) system was built by General Electric (GE) specifically for the advanced field artillery system (AFAS) program. During its development and testing, a series of test firings were conducted at the GE, Malta, NY test facility. These test firings revealed that high frequency pressure oscillations that are known to exist in some RLPG, existed during the firing of this gun. In light of this phenomenon, many experimental studies and model simulations of the propellant ignition/combustion processes of the RLPG system were performed. These studies were performed by the Ballistic Research Laboratory (BRL), Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), and the Tactical Systems Department of GE, concluding that the main sources of pressure oscillations are inherent in the combustion process of liquid propellants (LP). The New Cannon/Development Compatibility Section of the Ammunition and Security Technology Division at AEDEC was tasked to investigate the effects of these LP pressure oscillations on projectile components and identify and safety concerns due to these oscillations. This investigation included firing seven instrumented projectiles incorporated of the RLPG 2 and one instrumented projectile out of the XM282 52 cal. tube as a comparison solid propellant gun firing. Seven of the eight instrumented projectiles incorporated pressure transducers, which were designed to measure base pressure profiles at the projectile during the interior ballistic cycle. This is the first time that the Army was able to measure base pressure and map the base pressure profile during the interior ballistic cycle.

This book contains papers presented at the NATO Advanced Research Workshop titled "Application of Gun and Rocket Propellants in Commercial Explosives". (SST.ARW975981) The workshop was organized in collaboration with codirector Dr. Bronislav V. Matseevich (KNIIM) and held in Krasnoarmeisk, Moscow Region, Russia, October 18-21, 1999. About 70 participants from 11 different countries took part in the meeting (Russia, Belarus, Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium, China, USA, Spain, Israel, Ukraine and the Netherlands). The workshop was principally the continuation of a previous NATO workshop on Conversion Concepts for Commercial Application and Disposal Technologies of Energetic Systems" held at Moscow, Russia, May 17-19, 1994 in the specific area of the reuse of gun and rocket propellants as ingredients in commercial explosives. Oldrich Machacek Vll ACKNOWLEDGMENTS I would like to thank Dr. B.V. Matseevich, Director of the Krasnoarmeisk Scientific Research Institute of Mechanization ("KNIIM") for his extensive involvement as co-director in organizing the Advanced Research Workshop in Krasnoarmeisk, Russia.

Rocket Propulsion has come of age. Although its potentialities and capabilities in many areas have been recognized for centuries, it is only in recent years that scientists have had the materials and the manufacturing techniques at their command so they could control and direct the tremendous forces available. Space exploration and manned flights by astronauts have brought the science of rocketry to the attention of the general public. It has also stimulated the interest of students at all levels of advancement in the technical details of space flight. Rocket Propellant Technologies is written for serious students of astronautics. This volume reviews briefly the history of rocketry and the fundamental principles connected with rocket propulsion. Types of propellants, the chemical reactions involved, and the techniques used in manufacturing are explained. The merits of solid and liquid fuels are enumerated. Exotic propellants of the future are discussed, with reasons why their development is essential. Finally, the safety aspects of manufacturing and testing rocket propellants are given in detail. The Amateur Rocket Association under whose guidance this series has been prepared, serves as a focal point for many related activities, bringing new ideas to the attention of its members and offering suggestions for future lines of research.

This report examines seven disposal technologies being considered by the U.S. government as alternative methods to the process of incineration for destroying mortars, rockets, land mines, and other weapons that contain chemical warfare agents, such as mustard gas. These weapons are considered especially dangerous because they contain both chemical warfare agent and explosive materials in an assembled package that must be disassembled for destruction. The study identifies the strengths and weaknesses and advantages and disadvantages of each technology and assesses their potential for full-scale implementation.

The Gunpowder Epic is one of three planned publications on military technology within Dr Needham's immense undertaking. The discovery of gunpowder in China by the 9th century AD was followed by its rapid applications. It is now clear that the whole development from bombs and grenades to the invention of the metal-barrel hand gun took place in the Chinese culture area before Europeans had any knowledge of the mixture itself. Uses in civil engineering and mechanical engineering were equally important, before the knowledge of gunpowder spread to Europe in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Dr Needham's new work continues to demonstrate the major importance of Chinese science and technology to world history and maintains the tradition of one of the great scholarly works of the twentieth century.
