Abstract : A method for stress analysis of the hollow boattail base portion of an artillery shell is presented. The analysis is presented in two parts: maximum stresses at the muzzle and maximum stresses in the gun. Each case is examined in terms of projectile geometry and gun pressure. Derivations or references are included for the equations. (Author)
