The mechanics of a powder-drive water jet
- 20 Downloads
We consider the processes in a powder-drive pulse water jet in which the acceleration of the water shell occurs as the result of the energy from burning powder. The one-dimensional motion of the fluid is described in the nonstationary formulation, while the combustion of the powder is described in a quasistationary formulation. The barriers are assumed rigid. In a numerical solution that is presented we use the method of complete computation. For a specific structure of the cannon we give the results of numerical computations. We discuss a simplified approach for estimating the parameters of the apparatus. Four figures. Bibliography: 5 titles.
