An important phase of a prospective general procedural standardization of ballistic velocity testing and evaluation is considered. To accommodate relationships between striking and residual velocities, a basic form is developed from a natural generalization of existing theory and a numerical scheme for parameter determination is presented. Actual evaluation of relevant form parameters from given vs, vr data sets is afforded by an associated FORTRAN program which additionally incorporates a plot routine to provide graphic representation.
