Dynamic Response of Electromagnetic Launcher’s Rail Subjected to Cosine Pressure

Wen Liu, Ligong Zhang, Xiangzhong Bai, Feng Liu


In order to extend the rail life and improve the firing accuracy, the electromagnetic launcher’s rail can be modeled as a beam on elastic foundation with simply supported beam by moving load. Euler beam theory is applied to build the Mechanical model and the analytical solution of the equation subjected to cosine magnetic pressure is derived in detail, which has successfully avoided the errors which are caused by using the uniform pressure to approximately replace the variable force. Numerical analysis of the dynamic response on rail by the MATLAB software shows that as the exciting frequency increases, the peek of the maximal deflection and vibration velocity increase gradually. Taking the same speed of load into account, the dynamic response of rail is obviously smaller than constant force. Therefore the reliable theory basis is provided for the design and control the rail, which promotes the practical application of the electromagnetic Launcher.
