A2_6 Computational railgun dynamics & back EMF

Thomas Hands, David Marshall, Ian Griffiths, Gary Douglas


Railguns are projectile firing devices that operate on the basic principles of electro-magnetism. In this paper we describe a novel method of simulating the dynamics of such a gun by solving a system of differential equations numerically. We then use this method to explore the effect of back EMF on railgun dynamics.
