Abstract : A lumped parameter model of liquid injection in a regenerative liquid propellant gun is developed. A set of ordinary differential equations is presented which account for (1) the coupling between piston motion and liquid injection and (2) the inertia of the liquid in the reservoir. Results of the simulation are presented and compared to experimental data from a 30-mm RLPG test fixture.
