Numerical modeling of melt-wave erosion in 2D block armatures

Abstract

The majority of published work on the transition to arcing contact in solid-armature railguns has focused on modeling the current melt wave, a localized front of molten material that erodes the perimeter of the armature. The most frequently cited models are based on two-dimensional (2D) analytical formulations in which the dominant source of current… (More)
