...Jerome Tzeng; Alexander Zielinski; Edward Schmidt Electromagnetic (EM) railguns are similar to powder guns in that both provide an accelerative force to the projectile, while accepting the resulting recoil impulse. They are designed to contain lateral and axial pressure. They must be capable...

...C. Mu¨ller; A. Bohmann In electromagnetic railgun experiments at ISL, the composite projectiles are accelerated up to 2000 m/s with a maximal acceleration of 7 × 10 6 m / s 2 . The maximum forces typically will have been achieved after 200 μs. One consequence of this dynamic load is a strain rate...
