A six degree of freedom flight dynamic model incorporating an aerodynamic database derived from DSTO wind tunnel data was developed for the Mk-82 store. The model can be linked with aircraft flight dynamic models, and forms part of a general programme to model aircraft carriage and delivery, weapon release and store ballistics. A rudimentary ejection model was also incorporated to represent the forces and moments experienced by the store at the point of release. The model is valid for free stream flight only, and ignores the effects of aircraft-store interaction. MK-82 Bombs, Free flight, Flight dynamics, External store separation.
