Pagination or Media Count:
An analysis of the XM129 grenade launcher was conducted to determine the dynamic loads, the resultant stresses, and the operational power requirements. General relationships defining the loads were derived. The equations were evaluated at various points. Power requirements and stresses were determined based upon these equations. The results can be used to facilitate the analysis of any future design changes.
