Abstract : Equations of re-entry, previously solved almost exclusively by digital computing equipment, are adapted to the analogue computer. Procedures are describes to make the dynamic equations of ballistic re-entry compatible to analogue simulation techniques. Considering four sets of initial conditions, the equations are solved on an EAI PACE 231R analogue computer and an IBM 7074 digital computer and the results compared. (Author)
