Abstract:

The report summarizes and describes the work accomplished on Contract N00164-69-C-0216 D.R.I. Project 4260 - Digital Computer Simulation and Calculation of Trajectories of Self-Suspended Flares during the period June 1, 1969 thru December 31, 1970. The work was divided into two phases The study of the effects of aerodynamic coefficients, launch velocity and burning rate on flare trajectory, and the study of the effects of aerodynamic moments on the flare trajectory. The description and documentation of the computer programs for two dimensional trajectory, and three dimensional trajectory are presented in Appendix A of the report. Author
