Abstract : A previous study demonstrated the advantages that could be obtained in using loose liner naval gun barrel construction, particularly if the liner is autofrettaged. This report deals with the longitudinal forces required to assemble and disassemble such constructions and shows that with close control of tube straightness and initial clearance, these forces are relatively small.
