Abstract:

A math model is presented for simulating the performance of the SEU-3A Ejection Seat Escape System which employs propulsion, parachute, and stabilization subsystems. Seatman, man alone, and seat alone configurations are treated as rigid bodies in six degrees-of-freedom. Canopy first recovery parachute deployment by rocket andor drogue parachute is modelled as well as lines first drouge deployment. Parachute opening equations are treated in detail, and risersuspension line forces are assumed to be elastic. In addition, an aircraft model is formulated. Author
