Even the earliest weapon developers faced the need to understand how and why guns and ammunition work in order to improve their effectiveness. As weapons became more sophisticated, the field of ballistics naturally divided into three main areas of specialization: interior, exterior, and terminal ballistics. Providing unique coverage of all three areas, Ballistics: Theory and Design of Guns and Ammunition offers a seamless presentation of the complex phenomena that occur during the launch, flight, and impact of a projectile. Reader-friendly in style and format, the book explains the fundamental physics, terminology, theory, engineering aspects, and design techniques for each area in gradually increasing detail and complexity. Starting with interior ballistics, the authors examine the analytical and computational tools used to predict a weapon’s behavior in terms of pressure, stress and velocity, demonstrating their applications in ammunition and weapons design. The book continues with coverage of exterior ballistics, exploring the physics behind trajectories, including linear and nonlinear aeroballistics. The final section focuses on the effects of projectile impact, including details on shock physics, shaped charges, penetration, fragmentation, and wound ballistics. Enhanced with insights drawn from the authors’ extensive experience in government laboratories, industry, and academia, Ballistics provides an ideal vehicle for encouraging superior design and innovative applications in the field.

Exterior Ballistics with Applications

Exterior Ballistics with Applications – Skydiving, Parachute Fall, Flying Fragments presents a modern approach to introduce the basics of exterior ballistics and its methods from the simple ideal model of projectile motion to the automatic solution of the differential equations of projectile flight using PC programs. The book uses different approaches to solve the differential equations of projectile motion — among them the Siacci method and the numerical methods. The results obtained through the integration of differential equations of projectile flight are mostly analytical formulas that describe the projectile trajectory and make the exterior ballistics a comprehensible science. The Differential Equations of Projectile Flight are also integrated numerically using some original PC programs that can be easily modified to be used in similar scenarios or other new ones and give the reader the possibility to solve a great variety of Exterior Ballistics problem. Exterior Ballistics with Applications can be considered as an interdisciplinary applied mathematics and physics manuscript for the vast mathematics and physics models and techniques employed. It is a great source for applications in physics, calculus, differential equations, numerical methods, and PC programming as well. The book is illustrated with about 140 solved examples related to different artillery and infantry firearms that demonstrate the use of formulas and the solution methods of ballistics to find the elements of projectile trajectories. Exterior Ballistics with Applications includes as well two interesting topics that can be considered as applications of exterior ballistics: 1. Skydiving and parachute falling related with the trajectory of a parachutist launched from a horizontally flying airplane with un-deployed parachute, in different meteorological conditions, and in presence of air resistance and wind. 2. The ballistics of projectile fragments that is an important element of Terminal Ballistics necessary to study the effectiveness of fragmentation ammunitions on the personnel and objects, and other problems related with the construction of fragmentation ammunitions, or with Forensic Sciences. Exterior Ballistics with Applications is comprehensive and serves as reference material to provide answers to problems encountered in the practice of motion of unguided projectiles, skydiving and flying fragments of antipersonnel ammunitions.

Ballistik ist jene Wissenschaft, welche die gesamten physikalischen Erschein- gen und die Bewegung eines geworfenen Körpers (Geschosses) behandelt. Sie wird je nach dem Umfeld, worin Geschossbewegung stattfindet, in verschiedene Teilgebiete unterteilt: Die Innenballistik beschäftigt sich mit den Vorgängen rund um die Beschl- nigung des Geschosses innerhalb der Waffe. Ihre Zuständigkeit endet, sobald das Geschoss die Waffe verlässt. Auch unmittelbar danach kann die Waffe den - schossflug noch beeinträchtigen, z. B. durch Schwingungen oder nachfolgende Gase, welche zunächst das Geschoss überholen. Für diesen Teil der Geschoss- wegung ist die sogenannte Abgangsballistik zuständig. Hat das Geschoss den Einflussbereich der Waffe vollständig verlassen, so folgt es während seines Fluges bis zum Ziel den Gesetzmäßigkeiten der Außenballistik. In dieses Gebiet fällt die Bestimmung des örtlichen und zeitlichen Verlaufs der Flugbahn, der Geschwindigkeit und der Eigenbewegung des Geschosses um s- nen Schwerpunkt, unter Berücksichtigung aller auf das Geschoss einwirkenden Kräfte. Trifft das Geschoss auf ein Objekt auf und dringt in dieses ein, so werden die dabei auftretenden Gesetzmäßigkeiten durch die Endballistik untersucht. Handelt es sich beim getroffenen Objekt um einen Menschen oder ein Tier, bezeichnet man das betreffende Wissensgebiet mit Wundballistik.

Evan Marshall and Ed Sanow rocked the firearms world with the release of Handgun Stopping Power and Street Stoppers. Both books predicted the effectiveness of all types of ammunition by studying the results of real-life shootings rather than relying on laboratory tests that ignored the dynamics of an actual gunfight. This third book in the series provides the very latest street results of all the major handgun calibers, from .22 LR to .45 ACP, as well as popular rifle and shotgun loads. It also contains chapters on short-barrel ballistics, the emergence of the hot new .357 SIG caliber, the continued success of the .40 S&W, the development of the latest exotic ammo, the effectiveness of black powder firearms and a brand-new ammo test protocol based on the results of the many gunfights of U.S. Border Patrol officers.
