Abstract:

Since the unwinding ribbon has the potential of becoming an inexpensive, simple, and reliable non-horological delay arming device for large caliber munitions as it has been for small caliber munitions, its equation of motion has been derived for use as a design tool. The solution to this initial value problem has been studied to determine its correlation with experimental results and to determine the sensitivity of the ribbons behavior to variations in its parameters. The results indicate that the computer simulation of this problem could be used advantageously in designing unwinder ribbon devices.
