Ballistics: Theory and Design of Guns and Ammunition by Donald E. Carlucci, Sidney S. Jacobson

By Donald E. Carlucci, Sidney S. Jacobson

Even the earliest weapon builders confronted the necessity to know the way and why weapons and ammunition paintings in an effort to increase their effectiveness. As guns turned extra subtle, the sphere of ballistics evidently divided into 3 major components of specialization: interior, exterior, and terminal ballistics. supplying particular assurance of all 3 components, Ballistics: concept and layout of weapons and Ammunition bargains a unbroken presentation of the advanced phenomena that take place through the release, flight, and effect of a projectile.
Reader-friendly well-liked and structure, the publication explains the elemental physics, terminology, idea, engineering facets, and layout concepts for every region in steadily expanding aspect and complexity. beginning with inside ballistics, the authors study the analytical and computational instruments used to foretell a weapon’s habit by way of strain, rigidity and pace, demonstrating their purposes in ammunition and guns layout. The publication keeps with assurance of external ballistics, exploring the physics in the back of trajectories, together with linear and nonlinear aeroballistics. the ultimate part makes a speciality of the results of projectile influence, together with info on surprise physics, formed fees, penetration, fragmentation, and wound ballistics.
Enhanced with insights drawn from the authors’ wide event in govt laboratories, undefined, and academia, Ballistics presents a fantastic car for encouraging better layout and leading edge functions within the box.

Example text

Quite often we shall see internal energy and what is commonly known as ‘‘pdV’’ work terms together in our energy balance equations. The term is called pdV work because it is special and separate from work generated by, say, a paddle wheel moving fluid around. This work term arises from pressure pushing on a given volume. If the volume changes by an infinitesimal amount, dV, we essentially have force acting through a distance. To prove this to yourself, look at the units. Because we see these terms together so often, it is convenient for us to group them into one term, which we will call enthalpy, H.

Heat and work are added to or removed from the system at the system boundaries while the distribution of energy between internal or kinetic energy is done within the system. ß 2007 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. 40 explicitly for a Lagrangian system Q1---2 þ W1---2 ¼ m    ! 1 1 u2 þ V22 À u1 þ V12 2 2 (2:41) Here we have neglected the gravitational potential energy terms and used the intensive form of the energy, multiplied by the system mass. As previously stated, many times we would like to use enthalpies instead of internal energies.

We examine the state of the system before some event and we usually examine it at some point, later in time, we are interested in. Some of the concepts of thermodynamics were introduced in earlier sections, work and energy being the major ones. Here we shall look in detail at two ways of describing thermodynamic systems to proceed with our study. ß 2007 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. 38 is our extensive form of the definition of the system energy, E. In this equation, U is the internal energy, m is the system mass, V is the system velocity, g is a gravitational constant, and z is some height above a reference datum.
