Abstract:

The sabot discard process from a slowly rolling, fin stabilized projectile is examined from the time of shot ejection until the round enters interference-free flight. Launch disturbances relating to muzzle blast, fin, shadowing, mechanical contact, and aerodynamic interference are examined both from the experimental data and analytically.
