Abstract

Apart from their primary function, namely the firing of projectiles, both small- and large-caliber weapons generate a rather unpleasant side-effect — the muzzle blast. This phenomenon is caused by the propellant gases being suddenly released from the barrel behind the projectile. Directly near the weapon, this muzzle report may present a hazard to life and limb and may also cause damage to material. This limits, to a certain extent, the use of the weapon. Personnel working in the near vicinity of the weapon must wear either protective earmuffs or earplugs. Further away from the weapon, people are (or at least feel) disturbed by the impulse noise.
