I am not a weapons designer, this is purely to satisfy my own curiosity :)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I would like to simulate a gun shot in a rifle barrel and determine the mode and freq. of vibration using a FE program (Code_Aster if anyone is interested), but I don't really know what transient load to apply.

What components go into making the barrel vibrate? Shape of course, boundry cond. i.e. barrel to receiver connection etc. - but how would you describe the discharge of a round?

Thanks in advance.
