Application of Electromagnetic Guns to Future Naval Platforms
Designs for future naval vessels are strongly considering electric drive systems. Already employed in commercial cruise ships, electric drive offers the advantages of increased ship design flexibility, improved efficiency, ...
Electromagnetic and Structural Analyses of an Integrated Launch Package
In this paper, detailed three-dimensional (3D) transient electromagnetic (EM) analyses with temperature-dependent material properties were performed using a state-of-the-art analysis tool to calculate current densities, ...
Single Shot Switch Performance on the Cannon Caliber Electromagnetic Gun Program
Analyzer (DMA) tests. Also documented in this paper will be the results from specialized viscoelasticity tests performed on representative composite windings to determine preload loss versus time, temperature, and stress. ...
Continued Testing of the Cannon Caliber Electromagnetic Gun System (CCEMG)
The cannon caliber electromagnetic gun system is based upon a compulsator driven 30 mm rapid fire railgun system. The objective of the program was to develop a compact, lightweight test bed capable of launching three, five ...
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 ...
