A numerical simulation capability for the injector flow of a regenerative liquid propellant gun (RLPG) is presented. The problem involves fairly complex geometries and two pistons in relative motion; therefore a stabilized space‐time finite element formulation developed earlier and capable of handling flows with moving mechanical components is used. In addition to the specifics of the numerical method, its application to a 30 mm RLPG test firing is discussed. The computational data from the simulation of this test case are interpreted to provide information on flow characteristics, with emphasis on the tendency of the flow to separate from the injection orifice boundary of the test problem. In addition, the computations provided insight into the behaviour of the flow entering the combustion chamber.
