Abstract


Aiming at the object of the firing range maximization of the grenade of the cased telescoped ammunition(CTA) gun, a classical interior model was established according to the special charge structure of the CTA and the principle of the sequential combustion with two ignitions. Combined with the particle trajectory model, the optimization design of the integration of the interior and exterior ballistics was carried out using the intelligent optimization algorithm. The results show that, the maximum chamber pressure and the muzzle velocity simulated using the interior model of the CTA gun agree well with the experimental results. The optimal scheme of the projectile mass and the charge design was obtained by means of the optimization design of the ballistic integration. The grenade projectile mass increases 16.4% and the maximum range increases 11.8% compared with the original scheme. The method in the paper can improve the integrated ballistic performance of the CTA and provide an efficient tool for its ballistic and charge design.
