Abstract:

The equations of motion are presented for the inertia weight, firing pin and detent balls of the graze module of the high performance point detonating fuze. These equations are all in terms of the generalized graze forcing functions. The equations are also presented for the case where the graze forcing function-time plot is assumed to have a triangular shape. The criteria are established for the minimum values of forcing functions required to activate the graze module. All differential and constraint equations are presented in numerical form, but no numerical results are obtained. The numerical constants used are for the 105mm Howitzer Shell, M1.
