Thanks to World of Warships for sponsoring this video and enabling us to build this epic electromagnetic coilgun!
Last time they helped us build an electromagnetic railgun -- now we're making an even more complicated one -- using coilgun principles! Plus, might as well test it against Thanos.

  • So, 1) It's a gun so big you had to strap a boat to it? 2) I think it could use a shoulder strap. 3) Would it be possible to rifle the barrel? 4) Can the power be increased (if you could do so without breaking your local firearms laws)? 5) Could it be made semi-automatic rather than bolt-action? 6) At least it's more powerful than the rail-gun, though that could just be the larger projectiles...

  • Put a neodymium magnet in it. Also i recommend using a full h-bridge to drive the coils as reversing power just before you send the main pulse will maximizes the strength of the previous coil but the flyback voltage will get dangerously high so hands off

    Aditya LewisAditya Lewis3 gün önce
  • just wondering but when you programmed it did you account for the projectile's acceleration. As the projectile goes do the barrel it gains speed, so the last coil should turn on and off much quicker than the last one. If you did not then the projectile will be slowed down by the second or third coil. also if you got the round to spin long ways it would gyroscopic stabilise to round and you would not get it turning on its side

    spacemandaxxspacemandaxx4 gün önce
  • I would be interested in the technical details. muzzle velocity, projectile weight, weight of the gun, efficiency, power capacity

    FactoryofRedstoneFactoryofRedstone4 gün önce
    • +Alex V In this case efficiency, is the energy of the projectile over the electric energy required per shot (integral over the Voltage times the Current). So exactly what you said output/input. Ok power capacity is probably the wrong translation. I meant the energy stored in the on-board batteries. So with the energy per shot, you can then calculate the number of shots you can make before recharging. Which is in my opinion a quite important feature. Oh what factor is pretty efficient for you? 0.9, 0.5, 0.1, 0.01?

      FactoryofRedstoneFactoryofRedstone21 saatler önce
    • What do you mean efficiency? and what does power capacity even mean? I am an engineer and don't know what you are talking about. For a coil gun you run a current and let the magnetic field do the work on the rigid body. Sounds pretty efficient to me. Conventionally efficiency is the ratio of output to input. Just trying to understand the info you are looking for.

      Alex VAlex VGün önce
  • Nice build :) Maybe you could use optogates to control the switching. A gate after every coil will turn the previous off and on the next one

I think you should figure out how to pump all of that juice into a single coil with stronger components and thicker wiring for the same .50 cal projectile.
