In this work, a four stage induction coil-gun has been designed and the parameters acting on the bullet velocity has been investigated. The mutual inductance variation depending on the bullet coil position, determination of firing point exposed to the maximum force with respect to the length, and appropriate material selection for the bullet coil have been analyzed. Optimum solutions for these parameters have been presented. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
