The paper is concerned with improvement of the devices for formation of super high-speed fluid jets termed hydro cannon. Two modes of the energy injection into the fluid (the piston impact and the powder explosion) are considered and advantages of the use of the gunpowder are determined. A numerical technique for prediction of the jet formation, developed previously by one of the authors is applied for description of the velocity and pressure fields within the hydro cannon. Effect of the design parameters on the fluid acceleration is explored and suggestions for improvement of the hydro cannon design are made.
