Applications are invited from motivated and eligible candidates for JRF in the research project “Failure Analysis of the Rotating Band under rammed condition for 155mm×52 cal Gun System through Numerical methodology”. The brief description of the project is given below:

Rotating band of ammunition intends to provide obturation or gas seal against high pressure developed by rapid burning of propellant inside the gun chamber. It is also utilized to spin the projectile through the rifled barrel which is required to stabilize the projectile in flight. Deformation of driving band starts during ramming operation and gets completed as the projectile travels few centimeters down the bore. Ramming force developed due to interaction of band and barrel ensures that the projectiles do not fall back, irrespective of the angle of elevation of barrel. Determining the ramming force and understanding the deformation of driving band is essential step in designing the rotating band and Ammunitions. This project will focus in understanding the deformation behaviour of band through finite element methods.

Interested candidates are requested to submit a detailed CV to Dr. Indrasen Singh via e-mail: indrasen@iiti.ac.in by 2 nd Feb 2022.
