Abstract:

The study of these effects is divided into two major areas 1 To derive the equations of motion for a re-entry vehicle and write a computer program which will solve these equations. 2 To obtain and analyze two computer solutions for each of several re-entry configurations and initial conditions. The analysis of these comparative runs points out the importance of considering a correlation equation in some trajectory calculations.
