Title:Analysis of missile launchers part M phase 2; missile on flexible shoes
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 on a flexible understructure, on which a missile supported by two flexible shoes moves under the action of a prescribed thrust force. The launcher system is represented by a uniform beam which is supported by pin support and a rotational spring at one end and a linear spring at an interior point. The missile, assumed to be a rigid mass, is supported on the rail by two linear springs. The missile is also supposed to be rotating (SOSR) and mass unbalance effects are included. A pair of coupled integral equations are obtained which define the motion of the missile and a numerical technique is developed for their solution.
