The structural responses of launchers are important because they affect the projectile performance and the operating limits of the railgun system. Structural analysis makes it possible to make better decisions in launcher design. Example analyses of the Los Alamos HIMASS and Lethality Test System launchers are presented in this paper. Also, a discussion of the benefits and limitations of these analyses is included.
