Title: Airgun pellet performance using computational fluid dynamics
Author: Corey, Kenneth P.
Abstract: Very little formal analysis has been done with respect to flow around small scale projectiles. In late 1991, a local manufacturer of airgun pellets and related equipment approached RIT to investigate the flow characteristics of two particular airgun pellet geometries. Initial work was completed with the RIT wind tunnel through the use of scaled up models of the pellets. The conclusions of this work showed many interesting results, even though only the low speed velocity range of the pellets was studied. In order to study the actual operating velocity range of the pellets, the use of a Computational Fluid Dynamics program was necessary. The results from the CFD analysis of the two airgun pellets are presented in this work.
