PROJECT TITLE :
Railgun With Steel Barrel Sections and Thermal Management System
By electrically isolating sections from the breech to the muzzle of a specially designed metal gun barrel (steel), the boundary conditions utilized in the 1984 paper by Kerrisk are modified. The result permits a metal gun barrel to be located close to the present-carrying rails while still maintaining high inductance per unit length ( ). Descriptions of 2 designs of 2-rail open air railguns that use this result for an efficient gun are presented. Each current-carrying rail is supported by its own steel barrel section. For every case, a thermal management system is included. The open gun bore is directly exposed to the atmosphere or a gas ambient if a dielectric enclosure is used, along the gun’s entire length.
