hello ive recently downloaded the ggdt and am wondering if i could get some help with filling in the blanks
ive attached a picture for refrence
in the chamber data colum its pretty straight forward only problem being i dont know the temp of the air im putting into the chamber???
in the second colum *(valve data)* it asks for what type of vavle im using but ball valve is not there????
also the flow coefient????? seat diameter??????? dead volume??????
im using a basic 1" ball valve?
i have other question but ill ask as the questions are answer,,any help is gratly appriciated
Leave it as it is, room temperature.
Change valve type to "generic"
Flow coef around 35
Opening time - well, depends how fast you can open it really. I would say around 100ms to give you an idea.
Is there even a box for opening time? :]
Dead volume is the amount of space between main valve and projectile
Hope it helps and if im even correct.
If you change the valve type to "Generic" then yes.
That you are.
wow changing it to "generic" made things alot easier lol
now for the projectile colum, friction??? initial position????
im using everyday marbles
it asks for an answer in inches cubed for the dead volume, my marble rest againt the internal ball from the ball valve so the is no dead volume???
Leave friction as it is, intitial position and dead volume are zero if the projectile is resting against the valve.
ok its come up with a warning that the barrel is choking the flow,,can some one kindly tell me if i should bother with this warning???
my ballistic range is 245m and takes 7 seconds to reach is that respectable???
muzzle velocity 156.6 m/s
muzzle energy 78.5 j
travel time 12.5 ms
pressure drop 0.4 psi
how am i doing ???????? is this a decent gun???? for what it is???
It's very optimistic. I'll model it for you..
Be back in a second
It gives me 253 feet per second, though I don't have a perfectly accurate valve opening time figure.
Relax FORE!!!, cut it out with those triple question marks behind every question Take it easy, everyone here who knows how to use GGDT well would gladly help.
How big is your chamber
Can you post a screen cap?
It just means your flow coefficient is too big but this doesn't affect the results.
is that what ur guns projectiles travel at? or is that what mine does?
and sorry frozebyte this new proggy is exciting,ill use one of theses(?) from now on lol
it 65mm pipe approximatly 1.1 m long
heres a link to the weapon http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/first-a ... 18684.html
a lil off topic but check out the last page and sus out my ammom holder and ammom i built it today ,and carbon fibre barrel
That's yours. GGDT tells me I get 955 feet per second at 156.3 ft/lbs. From a 5g projectile.. And then if I use hydrogen, 1449 feet per second at 360 ft/lbs.. Ahh, 400 psi with a super efficient piston valve ported b a 1/2" QEV..what Won't you do? ( next gun)
It will go up or down depending on how fast you open the valve. I put in 200ms as a starting point. Spring loading would definitely give moar.
