  3. Ballistics : theory and design of guns and ammunition

    Carlucci, Donald E.
    Boca Raton, FL : CRC Press, c2008.

    The field of ballistics divides itself naturally into three subcategories: interior ballistics, exterior ballistics, and terminal ballistics. Providing unique coverage of all three disciplines, this book explains the theory and science of each in progressively greater detail and complexity, making it accessible and useful for both the novice and experienced engineer. It considers combustion and thermal processes within the projectile, aerodynamics and flight, and impact behavior. Both authors have considerable experience in the area as professors and in association with the National Defense Industrial Association (NIDA).
