Abstract : A digital computer program was written which will perform interior ballistic calculations on an IBM 709 or IBM 7090. A brief description is given as well as an outline of the method of analysis which this program uses. Examples are presented and both input and output formats are discussed. The purpose of this report is not to evaluate or verify the accuracy of the Hirschfelder System on Interior Ballistics, but only to describe a digital computer program which will perform the Hirschfelder calculations. The results of the hand calculations correspond exactly to the computer results.
