Grahic Jump Location
Experiment Schematic 1—water cannon, 2—first velocimeter, 3—second velocimeter, 4—ballistic pendulum, 5—impulsive water jet
Grahic Jump Location
Distribution of water velocity during the process of 200 g slug flow in the nozzle. Point of origin is shifted up to the moment of inflow.
Grahic Jump Location
Effective slug impulse versus connection nozzle radius and position of the connection
Grahic Jump Location
Velocity of inflow (into the nozzle), outflow (on the exit of collimator), pressure at different points of water cannon versus time. 1—velocity of inflow (inlet) and outflow (outlet) 2—pressure of powder gases in the combustion camera (x=−450 mm) 3—pressure in the middle of the water cannon (x=−200 mm) 4—pressure in the nozzle inlet (x=20 mm, nozzle length—70 MM) 5—pressure in the collimator inlet (x=75 mm, collimator length 60 mm).
Grahic Jump Location
General schematic of the water cannon 1—powder charge, 2—water load, 3—converging nozzle
