Abstract:

A program for the numerical solution of rocket ascent trajectory is presented, which is particularly appropriate for large, multistage, unfinned rocket systems. Fortran listings of this program for DEC-10 and PDP-1170 computer systems are given along with background information, examples, and prescriptions which clarify the usage of the program. Thrust increase and aerodynamic effects are specifically included, and the program is found to be both suitable and efficient for a wide variety of rocket trajectory problems. It is demonstrated how to modify the program results to include earths rotation effects.
