Abstract:

To complete contractual requirements, a detailed stress analysis was completed for each case design developed in the program. Empirical equations for basic cylinder, dome, skirt, blast tube reinforcement, and metal parts design were derived, together with general equations for stability buckling under load and discontinuity analysis. Specific evaluation of each case design for these considerations was completed, together with an analysis of design deviation from general conditions, or analysis of redesigned portions, where appropriate. Following analysis, each case design was established as capable of withstanding all stresses imposed under normal flight sequence. Author
