Black-Powder Propulsion Senior Project

  1. Sep 16, 2013 #1
    I'm working on my senior project. The project I'm working on can be modeled similarly to a gun. I am having some problems finding a way to model pressure as a function of time as a weight/mass moves down a tube after the combustion of black-powder. Any direction in this would be great.

    You want links on smooth bore interior ballistics, here is one that will help, and has some java code attached:

    Google is your friend on this one.
