Abstract:

This report presents a new method for solving Lagranges equations of motion utilizing FORMAC. An application using this technique is given with an eleven degree-of-freedom problem which describes the motion of the MllOAl, a self-propelled 8 howitzer under dynamic conditions of firing. A computer program has been written, is operational, and the listing is contained in the appendix. This report is an endeavor to automate the generation and solution of the equations of motion for dynamical systems.
