Abstract:

Employing a Monte Carlo routine and random number generator, a stochastic version of DYNACODE-G has been developed and implemented for the purpose of assessing probilistic gun tube muzzle motion behavior due to shot to shot variations in pertinent forcing functions which arise during firing. In addition, DYNACODE-G has been modified to accommodate input accelerations at the trunnion level to simulate vehicle motion over prescribed terrain, an externally supplied numerical integration scheme. Keywords Gun dynamics Gun tube muzzle motion Stochastic gun dynamics Monte Carlo routine Probablistic Muzzle behavior Fire control.
