Abstract:

This memorandum contains a dynamic analysis of the free-fall portion of the LAPES trajectory. The analysis was made in response to a request for a more exact method for locating the attitude control bar for unusual single-platform loads, such as vehicles. Results are presented in the form of a program in the Continuous System Modeling Program CSMP language for solving the equations of motion and graphs for an example calculation. Author
