Abstract


To investigate the controlling method of interior ballistic stability of bulk-loaded propellant guns, the combustion-gas generator and cylindrical stepped-wall chamber are designed aiming at the injection processes of combustion-gases in liquid. The expansion courses of Taylor cavities and the turbulent mixing characteristic of gas-liquid are recorded by means of high speed photographic system. Based on the experiment, three-dimensional unsteady model on the interaction of gas and liquid is established to simulate expansion characteristics of twin combustion-gas jets in liquid under different nozzle diameters. The distribution regularities of characteristic parameter in jet field are obtained and analyzed. The results show the pressure, velocity and temperature distributions under different nozzle diameters are basically the same at the initial time. As time goes on, these characteristic parameters under different nozzle diameters have large differences.
