Russian railgun reached a new power level

76
Russian specialists were able to master the technologies that in the future will allow the army to be equipped with electromagnetic guns. Employees of the Joint Institute for High Temperatures (JIHT) of the Russian Academy of Sciences have found a way to increase the power of the plasma railgun 6 times, according to News.




With the help of the electromagnetic field, this system accelerates projectiles to near-cosmic speeds. Moreover, even a small throwing object is endowed with tremendous destructive power.

According to Vladimir Polishchuk, head of the laboratory of the Shatura branch of the JIHT, scientists and engineers managed to design and build a new capacitive drive, “its power is sufficient to accelerate 100 g bodies to speeds above 3 km / s”.

In two years, the power of the installation in Shatura increased six times - from 0,8 megajoules to 4,8. Experiments with a railgun, which is powered by a pulsed inductive energy storage device, have been prepared. Such a power supply allows you to get a higher rate of energy input into the plasma, which should increase the temperature of the plasma piston and, accordingly, increase the speed,
Polishchuk told the newspaper.

Plasma piston systems make it possible to get throwing speeds at the 6 km / s level with a “drummer” mass of about 1 g. It is believed that in plasma railguns you can get a throwing speed in 10 – 12 km / s But so far, “the values ​​of this indicator are limited by the capabilities of the available technologies for manufacturing the channel, which must withstand enormous thermal and dynamic loads,” he noted.

Military expert Alexei Leonkov:

In the United States, rail accelerators with a solid rather than plasma bridge are already used as a catapult for launching aircraft from an aircraft carrier. Recently, an electromagnetic gun was tested, which provides 2,5 km / s speed for 10-20 kg shells. Plasma systems are being studied in the USA on a smaller scale. However, experiments were reported when a plasma clot was fired from a railgun at a speed of 100 km / s. In the case of a successful solution of technical problems, such plasma objects can, for example, disable satellite radio-electronic systems.

        The railgun today is a beautiful toy, no more. Here are some of the drawbacks of the railgun:
        1). Let the blank fly out at a speed of 5 km / s (less - it makes no sense, see above), then with a mass of 3 kilograms its energy will be 32,2 megajoules (with a mass of 10 kg, respectively, 125 megajoules). With a trunk length of, say, 10 meters, the acceleration will be 250 m / s² or 000 g. And the pulse power should be 25 gigawatts for a three-kilogram disc and 000 gigawatts for 1,6 kilograms. This is the average power in the pulse, the peak power is even greater, and at 6,2% efficiency (the efficiency of military samples is unknown, but significantly less than 10%). For a minute, 100 GW is the capacity of an average nuclear power unit. Therefore, we need some tricky thing that will accumulate this heap of energy, albeit from a source of significantly less power, and then very quickly land it in the form of an electric current. In artisanal railguns, a capacitor bank is used, but for a military gun some special capacitors are needed, since household electrolytes have a large capacitance, and a fast pulse does not work. Our scientists use disposable piezoelectric generators for this business, but so far with varying success.
        2). The consequence of high overloads is the complexity of manufacturing guided missiles, and the accuracy of firing with uncontrolled blanks hundreds of kilometers is poor, to say the least.
        3). When fired, an electric arc is formed, which cauterizes not only the projectile, but also the "rails" themselves, destroying the inner surface of the barrel of the railgun. Therefore, after several shots, the barrel has to be changed, which reduces the rate of fire and increases the cost of operating this wonderful weapon.
        4). The projectile must have electrical contact with the rails and have good electrical conductivity, like the rails. Otherwise, the accumulated energy will not be pumped into a magnetic field, but will be released into heat, which at such powers leads to a big bad boom. Aluminum, copper, silver and gold conduct well current, but all these are soft metals (and the last two are also expensive, therefore not considered), and therefore the rails will wear out quickly and quickly. And something needs to be done with this.
        Shooting at the enemy with an aluminum disc is also not good enough - the metal is not only soft, but also light, so it will be more inhibited against air. But this is solved as follows: the field accelerates an aluminum washer that pushes tungsten (or, as an option, uranium) crowbar with wings, which already flies to the enemy with greetings and democracy.
        5). The railgun is very useful to shoot crowbars on tanks, because no defense will help. Just have to first invent a portable thermonuclear reactor like a terminator or some portable power plant for 2-3 megawatts. And do not forget about the truck with spare trunks for our "rail tank" with a team of blacks to quickly replace the barrel directly on the battlefield, although organizing the replacement of burnt out guides is the easiest task.

            A plasma on the satellite will not work. It will not reach, because it will dissipate in the atmosphere of the earth.
            Disadvantages:
            Low sighting range. A plasma bunch, which maintains its integrity due to its own electromagnetic field, is subject to many external influences, and therefore is not stable on the flight path. In addition, it should be borne in mind that due to enormous energy losses, the life of the plasmoid itself is also very short.

            Do you need plasma? I remember the Shuttle with 7 experimental laser from the WINDOW was "highlighted", so the Merikos then complained for a long time that they were both human and electronically terribly prettier.

      The Americans froze their electric cannon.
      They planned a rate of fire twice as high as that of
      ordinary ship’s guns, and reached just the same
      practical rate of fire. And the rails withstood more than a hundred
      shots in a row. But there were plans for more.

        Sooner or later, technology will develop. New rail materials will appear, holding several thousand shots. The main application in my opinion is the navy and there may be space. Rate of fire is not fundamental. But reducing the size reserved for bk is already excellent. Plus, the risk of an explosion of ammunition from falling is reduced. The discs will not explode.

      I read a book about Tesla and everything that you are talking about was described there, up to the point that he was credited with an explosion in the taiga at the site of the alleged fall of the Tunguska meteorite as a result of his experiments in the transmission of electricity through the atmosphere. Tesla, realizing the destructive power of a weapon that could be created on the basis of his work, destroyed all his scientific records and stopped his research. This explains the fact that its development has not reached us. It is explained in the book, but as far as this can be believed, it is not for me to judge.

        This is in the RAS. Here is another photo:


        It is clear that this is a RAS, more a science, a prototype, experiments are underway. But all the same, chipboard and electrical tape are very striking, after "it was possible to master technologies that in the future will equip the army with electromagnetic guns." With this approach and funding, this future will not come soon. At least in this project.

    As we do not try, and the states are still ahead, this is the promise of the article
    Studies of plasma systems are conducted in the United States on a smaller scale. However, experiments were reported when a plasma bunch was shot from a railgun at a speed of 100 km / s

    Although there a little earlier:
    It is believed that in plasma railguns you can get a throwing speed of 10-12 km / s. But for now, "the values ​​of this indicator are limited by the capabilities of available technologies for manufacturing a channel that must withstand colossal thermal and dynamic loads"He noted.

    They can’t withstand the load while throwing at 10-12 km / s, but can they bear the load of 100 km \ s? request

        A plasma bunch, since it is a “bunch” and since it “shoots”, then it has mass, and if it has mass, then it also has energy, which destroys everything. For physicists, that a clot of plasma, that a solid substance is a material point that has mass and is able to move. And we are talking about a channel that must withstand the load.

    [quote] [/ q In the case of successful solution of technical problems, such plasma objects will be able, for example, to disable satellite electronic systems. uote] this is of course cool and R&D in these areas should be continued, but without new, much more wear-resistant materials to practical use is still far, And this is from the category of rather fundamental science

    Employees of the Joint Institute for High Temperatures (OIVT) of the Russian Academy of Sciences have found a way to increase the power of a plasma railotron 6 times, Izvestia reports.

    Option one. It was the night of December 31 to January 1 and when they woke up, it turned out that they had lost this method and everything had to be started from the very beginning. wassat
    The second option.On January 8, an error was found in the calculations and it turned out that the power of the plasma railgun 6 times decreased, but did not increase, as previously assumed. recourse
    Option three. Conscious citizens immediately took the found method to the nearest regional police department. lol
    Well, seriously, this is very good news. Many researchers have dropped their hands in the world. Topics in some places were closed at all, in some places grandmothers were cut ... Now, there will be hopes for a resumption of appropriations! good

    It is clear that the issues of creating email. magnetic accelerators are determined by their insolubility due to the lack of both fundamental theoretical knowledge and the lack of engineering solutions. It is obvious to us that such accelerators should and can only work effectively on rotating magnetic fluxes, and engineering solutions rely on induction devices of a new type and type and principle of creating magnetic force fluxes. However, there are no such directions and studies and their implementation. Moreover, new approaches to solving problems open up a huge layer of new possibilities for using spin or rotating magnetic fluxes of any interactions,

    It is very interesting to observe how many scientists know that a plasma breakdown reduces the voltage and optimizes the current in the circuit, and therefore reduces the so-called power, but at the same time they’re “beating their forehead against the wall” and creeping into the plasma levels of the process, not understanding them algorithms, no causal patterns, etc.

    I google, don’t worry. But so far the press is not reporting railguns, but prototypes of these of varying degrees of readiness and buried in the same problems.

    The Americans froze their electric cannon.
    They planned a rate of fire twice as high as that of
    ordinary ship’s guns, and reached just the same
    practical rate of fire. And the rails withstood more than a hundred
    shots in a row. But there were plans for more.

      Not really. These pieces checked on rails - shells - will be used.

    Explain to me the "Hurray" mood.
    Ours: clocked 100 g to 3 km / s
    Americos: 10-20 kg to 2,5 km / s

    I didn’t find a single sober comment in the article, a solid “mighty”, “America refused and we did”, do you even turn on the mental ganglion sometimes?

    in appearance this is, as it were, not at all an achievement, but the beginning of the transition to a technology that has long been mastered and recognized as unsuitable, focusing on indicators far exceeding our achievements!

    to remove 10 comments of contention: our shot momentum P = 0,3 kg * km / s, their shot momentum P = 25-50 kg * km / s.
    I don’t understand why, where is the cheers here?

    You do not understand exactly what you wrote about: how to turn on the mental ganglion.
    In our system, a projectile is pushed due to the movement of a plasma clot in the "barrel", while the Americans are moving a jumper of metal. Judging by the article, they didn’t advance much in plasma motion, but we put the main emphasis on this, because such a system is much more promising, and potentially opens up the possibility of creating weapons based on new principles.

    Why are railguns considered weapons for ships and supposedly for space? After all, it is easy to imagine a railgun as part of air defense. There are no problems on the ground (though underground) for charging pulsed inductive energy storage devices, energy production in compact nuclear installations (such as those on Status-6 - Poysedon, Burevestnik, Peresvet). With new and more effective developments, this is easily updated and the number of such drives is unlimited. The latter allows you to set many guides "shells" on the dome type "hedgehog" with a shift of the guides for example 1 degree. Install 4 such domes (for example near Moscow) to the West-East, North and South. Range of defeat 160 km. - reaches outer space. Many guides, drives and nuclear power plants allow you to "shoot" at a speed close to the machine gun. Further improvement of the "shells". In the end, it will be cheaper than missiles, although no one will write off the last.
