Abstract:

Mathematical relations are presented pertaining to various missile tank and bulkhead configurations. Although some of these relations are available in handbooks, they are included in this technical note together with a number of newly derived formulas. In this manner a comprehensive summary of equations is obtained, permitting rapid computation of volumes, surfaces and other geometric characteristics of a great variety of shapes. The purpose of this technical note is to eliminate the need for repeating the derivations of frequently used equations in preliminary design and layout of missiles.
