SWS Engineers have extensive experience in all aspects of ballistic analysis
from interior ballistics (gun launch conditions), exterior ballistics (in-flight
conditions), and terminal ballistics (target impact conditions).
SWS supports the IBHVG2 interior ballistics code
SWS has developed several in-house codes for unique interior ballistics such as:
Monolithic grain propellant
in-flight, fully recoiling gun system to model
payload expulsion from canister type projectiles
Stability Analysis / Drag Predictions
Aerodynamic coefficients using the DATCOM software program from Wright Patterson
6 DOF Trajectory Analysis support by several third party software programs.
Development of custom 6 DOF trajectory simulations for unique applications
V-50 / Armor Penetration Predictions
Warhead Fragmentation Analysis
Hydrocode analysis using Sandia Labs CTH software
Analysis of hard target penetration mechanics
Analysis of an exploding warhead fragmentation pattern
