Abstract:

An approximate analysis is presented of the motion of a flexible launcher on a flexible understructure, on which a missile supported by two flexible shoes moves under the action of a prescribed thrust force is described. The launcher system is represented by a uniform beam which is supported by a pin support and a rotational spring at one end and a linear spring at an interior point. The missile, assumed to be a rigid mass, is supported on the rail by two linear springs. The missile is also supposed to be rotating and mass unbalance effects are included. A pair of coupled integral equations are obtained which define the motion of the missile and a numerical technique is developed for their solution. Author
