Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to describe and discuss results obtained from a new stress routine, which is implemented in the Projectile Design Analysis System PRODAS. This system is regularly used by the Aerodynamics Branch FXA, AFATL, Eglin AFB, Fla, to design projectiles and to predict the aerodynamic behavior and performance of projectiles and rockets prior to testing in the Aeroballistic Research Facility. Due to the increasing variety of aerodynamic configurations that are being tested, a stress routine was desired which provides the modelsabot designer with a good estimation of projectile stress during the launch phase. edc
