Abstract : The third edition of this book has been thoroughly revised and includes new material reflecting the results of recent investigations in the domain of internal ballistics. The book describes the general theoretical bases of the internal ballistics of various types of barrel systems and powder rockets as well as contemporary methods for solving its chief problems. Special attention is devoted to the physical aspect of the processes involved, the laws of heating of the powder charges, and the principles of the processes acting in the channel of the gun barrel and in the chamber of the rocket. The book is not only a textbook for students in technical institutes but should be useful also to technicians and engineers in industry concerned with artillery. (Author)
