The mathematical model, usage, and documentation of an interactive computer simulation for an electromagnetic launcher is presented. The launcher is modeled as an electrical circuit. Three slight variations of the program permit studies of a launcher with (1) rail skin effects, (2) rail skin effects and approximated storage coil skin effects, or (3) neither of these effects. Usage of the program as currently implemented on the Westinghouse R&D Univac 1106 is described, with a sample session shown. The implementation of the program permits rapid scoping of the effects of parameter changes.
