Title:Analysis of missile launchers part J phase 2; analysis of multiple rocket launcher part J2
Author(s):Cullen, D.; Stippes, M.
Subject(s):Missile Launchers
Abstract:This report is an investigation of the dynamic response of a mobile, multiple rocket launcher to the forces generated during the launching of its rocket load. A simple two degree of freedom model is used to represent the launcher, and the equations of motion are uncoupled and linearized by assuming that the angular deviations about the equilibrium position are small. Motion of the rocket through the launcher has been neglected and the blast forces generated by the rocket exhaust gasses, as calculated from one dimensional rocket theory, are approximated to facilitate computation. Some numerical results are presented in graphical form.
