Abstract : Gun barrel erosion in high-velocity research guns and naval guns necessitates costly replacement of barrels. The report contains a stress analysis of a loose liner which can be easily installed and removed. Axial precompression is used to take up some of the initial clearance between the liner and barrel necessary to install the liner. (Author)
