Silencer simulation with AUTODYN
Silencers are used to reduce noise and muzzle flash generated by firearms. FEA can give valuable insight into firearm performance during the design process and in turn accelerate the optimization process.
In this project, ANSYS Autodyn was used to evaluate the effectiveness of a silencer mounted to a .416 Barrett sniper rifle. The sound power levels were extracted from simulations with and without a silencer for comparison.
