Tutorial: Projectile Moving Inside a Barrel

The purpose of this tutorial is to illustrate how to set up and solve a problem using the following two features in FLUENT.
• Moving Deforming Mesh (MDM) using the layering algorithm.
• User-defined real gas law.
The problem involves a projectile moving through a barrel and out of the muzzle. The flow is assumed to be inviscid.

Problem Description
A projectile weighing 120 grams is initially at rest inside a 20 mm caliber barrel. The gas inside the chamber is patched at a high pressure of 3000 atm and a temperature of 2700 K, and the projectile is released.
The motion of the projectile is computed using a UDF based on FLUENT’s Six Degree of Freedom UDF. In this case, only the pressure forces are considered, while drag and mechanical friction are neglected. The projectile is released at t=0. The Abel-Nobel equation of state is implemented using the user-defined real gas model.
