Railgun Solid Armature Scale Modeling
This paper describes a methodology for using two finite element (FE) codes, MAGTRPL and DYNA, to perform electromechanic, thermal, and structural modeling of railgun solid armatures. We analyze subscale armature experiments ...
A Study of Operating Modes for Compulsator Based EM Launcher Systems
The compensated pulsed alternator (compulsator) is a versatile power supply capable of interfacing with the electromagnetic launcher in various ways. The method that has been explored at length with several systems is the ...
