Abstract This paper will present the design of a novel-type velocity-controllable electromagnetic coil launcher (EMCL). By studying the influence of initial capacitor voltage on the velocity of an EMCL, the launcher voltage can be set to precisely adjust the velocity of projectile launching. The simulation of voltage and velocity in relation to time is obtained by Maxwell software. The experimental data show that for the launch accuracy to be achievable, the actual precision is 2%. Because of the excellent performance of Velocity-controllable EMCL, it can replace the air gun and applied to split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB).
