Book Summary

Probably a first in the field since Elements of Ordnance by Haynes, published in the 1900's, this is a book with a practical and up to date approach to a complex subject. Intended for the mechanical engineer concerned with large calibre gun engineering, it puts mechanical engineering and weapon uniqueness into clear perspective and prepares the groundwork for the intricacies of gun design. A wealth of engineering information is covered in seven chapters, including, gun barrels, breech assemblies, recoil systems, muzzle brakes, supporting structures, elevating and traversing mechanisms and balancing. The analyses contained in each chapter are illustrated by worked examples supported by straightforward computer applications. In all, a valuable book for both teacher and student in a field where published works are almost impossible to come by. This volume found acceptance as a text book and reference material at colleges in the US, Canada, UK, Spain, Germany, Finland and Czechslovakia
