Physics Electromagnetism/Coilgun

  • Coilgun Construction - Coilgun construction, circuit ideas, and other useful information on coilguns.
  • Electromagnetic Coilgun Design - Learn about electromagnetic coilgun design principles. These web pages describe theory, design and a small prototype. What is a coilgun? It accelerates a piece of iron or steel down a tube. The tube runs through a series of electromagnetic coils (like solenoids). Some careful timing circuits energize each coil in sequence. The principle of magnetic attraction draws the projectile along at rapidly increasing speed.
  • Electromagnetic Coilgun Forum - Directory of links and a threaded discussion forum for electromagnetic coil gun technology.
  • George and David's Coilgun - Information and experiences about coilgun. Includes many pictures, descriptions, and programs.
  • PowerLabs RailGun Research - Sam Barros' sponsored Rail Gun research. Project description, goals, design, and results.
  • Railgun Experience - Build a real railgun. Documented experiments with a railgun, including description, photos, and videos.
