      Zowarka, R.C.; Bacon, J.L.; Davis, D.G.; Sledge, R.L.; Uglum, J.R.; Driga, M.D. (IEEE, 1999-01)
      The US Department of Defense (DoD) and commercial entities are dependent on chemical plating and coating processes to replace worn or eroded material on damaged parts. Logistics Centers have been forced to consider replacement ...
    • Multi-Shot Power Supply Using Capacitors for an Electromagnetic Powder Deposition (EPD) Gun 

      Davis, D.G.; Bacon, J.L; Sledge, R.L; Polizzi, R.J; Zowarka, R.C; Uglum, J. (1997-07)
      The Department of Defense (DoD) and commercial entities are dependent on chemical plating and coating processes to replace worn or eroded material on damaged parts. Air Force Logistics Centers have been forced to consider ...
    • A New Electromagnetic Powder Deposition System 

      Bacon, J.L.; Davis, D.G.; Pollizzi, R.J.; Sledge, R.L.; Uglum, J.R.; Zowarka, R.C. (, 1997-09)
      Existing state of the art thermal spray processes (HVOF, D-Gun, Plasma Spraying) are limited to powder velocities of about 1 km/sec because they rely on the thermodynamic expansion of gases. A new thermal spray process ...
    • Railgun Instrumentation 

      Hotz, T.J.; Davis, D.G. (IEEE, 1995-01)
      In recent years, the railgun focus has switched to developing tactical weapons with launch velocities of 2 to 3 km/s. The projectile focus for tactical weapons has switched from plasma to solid armatures because of their ...
    • Scaling Analysis of the Electromagnetic Powder Deposition Gun 

      Uglum, J.R.; Bacon, J. L.; Davis, D.G.; Polizzi, R.J.; Sledge, R.L.; Zowarka, R.C. (, 1997-09)
      The electromagnetic powder deposition (EPD) system employs high velocity gas flow to accelerate powder material to conditions required for high strength plating. The gas flow, however, is not continuous; rather it consists ...
