Overall Parameters Design and Optimization System for Gun and Bullet

Zhifang Wei and Fang Wang
Abstract—The choosing of overall parameters, in the conceptual design stage, has been shown decisive, for developing efficient and reliable final gun and bullet products. Aimed at the feature that multidisciplinary knowledge will be related in the overall parameters design process, and in order to meet the various design requirement and aim, a multidisciplinary design optimization system is proposed to automatically acquire the optimized overall design parameters in this paper. Based on the empirical methods of individual disciplines including mechanics, ballistics, dynamics, the analyzing procedures for each discipline are developed, the coupling relations between disciplines are analyzed, and the integral analytic and optimized model of overall parameters are presented, then an integrated multidisciplinary design optimization system is built through integrating each analyzing procedure as well as the optimization software iSIGHT. Taking the 7.62mm semi-automatic gun and bullet system as a verification example, the gun’s firing rate and the bullet’s destination kinetic energy are obviously improved compared to the initial values , which proves the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed integration system in overall parameter design and optimization for gun and bullet system.

Index Terms—Gun and bullet system, integration system, multidisciplinary design optimization, overall parameters.
