Paper Abstract

The aims of this work were to demonstrate the feasibility of the visualization of the ignition phenomena in a translucent case, simulating a 20 mm ammunition case and to study the instrumentation, including the data processing, suitable for this kind of experiments. We observed many conventional and experimental 20 mm ignition systems, in order to test the maximum of possible configurations, with two cameras, a classical HITACHI and an electronic HADLAND camera. Pressure was measured with a KISTLER piezoelectric gauge, and a few tubes were fitted with strain gauges to check case deformation. These tests allowed the setting of the experimental methods and to consider several types of data processing, keeping in mind a number of ideas for further experimentations.
