Abstract:

This report describes a computer program which computes the static loads and moments or a sabot segment while under the in-bore environment. The physical characteristics of the sabot segments are also computed. Additionally, from the input data, a tape is prepared by the CDC 6500 computer for drawing sabot cross sections on the CALCOMP 570 Digital Plotter, together with a NANCY Digital Pringer Plot. The program is intended as another tool in the Computer Aided Design - Engineer CAD-E armory.
