Title:Analysis of missile launchers part M phase 1; two point mass moving on flexible beams
Author(s):Fretwell, C.C.; Stippes, M.
Subject(s):Missile Launchers
Abstract:This report contains an approximate analysis of the motion of a flexible launcher rail which is supported by a flexible understructure and is loaded by a missile with two point contact which moves across the rail under the action of a prescribed thrust force. The launcher system is represented by a uniform flexible beam which is supported by linear springs and the missile is constrained to remain in contact with the beam. A pair of coupled integral equations are obtained which define the motion of the missile and a numerical technique of integration is developed for their solution. Finally some numerical results are presented to show the effects of some of the parameters on the motion of the missile and the rail.
