The motion of ballistic missiles

The motion of ballistic missiles

Ratings: (0)|Views: 31|Likes:
Published by Patrik Gubeljak
This handbook on the motion of ballistic missiles has been prepared
primarily for use in training new personnel charged with the responsibility of
evaluating the performance of reentry bodies. Aerodynamic fundamentals and
characteristics of the atmosphere are reviewed briefly, followed by discussions
of the effucts on ballistic missile motion of gravity, earth rotation, the atmosphere,
and initial body rates. The anomalous motion resulting from various
types of mass and/or aerodynamic asymmetries is discussed in detail. Simple
solutions are given for the impact dispersion resulting from asymmetries and
nonstandard meteorological characteristics at the impact location. Various trajectory
simulations and flight test analyses are also discussed. Numerical examples
illustrate the material.

This
handbook
on
the
motion
of
ballistic
missiles
has
been
prepared
primarily
for use
in
training
new
personnel
charged
with
the
responsibility
of
evaluating
the
performance
of
reentry
bodies.Aerodynamic
fundamentals
and
characteristics
of
the
atmosphere
are
reviewed
briefly,
followed
by
discussions
of
the
effucts
on
ballisticmissile
motion
of
gravity,
earth
rotation,
the
atmo-
sphere,
and
initial
body
rates.
The
anomalous
motion
resulting
from
various
types
of
mass
and/or
aerodynamic
asymmetries
is
discussed
in
detail.
Simple
solutions
are
given
for
the
impact
dispersionresulting
from
asymmetries
and
nonstandard
meteorological
characteristics
at
the
impact
location.
Various
tra-
jectory
simulations
and
flight
test
analyses
are
also
discussed.
Numerical
ex-
amples
illustrate
the
material.
