Abstract:

Theoretical methods have recently been developed for predicting side moments and rolling moments created by a liquid payload on a spinning, coning projectile. A substantial amount of flight data is available from liquid payload projectiles fitted with yawsondes. There is also considerable data available from laboratory gyroscopes. To facilitate comparisons of flight measurements with theoretical results and with the experimental data base obtained from gyroscope experiments, data from some of the unstable liquid payload rounds have been analyzed in some detail.
