Computer program for calculating in-flight aircraft-store interface reaction loads.
|dc.contributor.author||Modzelewski, Stephen A.|
|dc.description.abstract||This thesis utilizes Military Specification, Mil-A-8591H, to provide and document a new computer program for calculating store reaction forces, due to inertial loads and airloads, at the aircraft-store interface. Due to the fact that the store is a statically indeterminate structure with unknown flexibility characteristics, the analysis to calculate the reaction forces is a relatively complex problem. The program was written to incorporate new requirements and techniques for calculating reaction loads at the aircraft-store interface in accordance with Mil-A-8591 revision H. This computer program was developed to be used on the VAX/VMS Computer System, Advanced Computational Laboratory, of the Aeronautics and Astronautics Department, Naval Postgraduate School. A detailed User's Manual which is included in Appendix A of this thesis was written to accompany the computer program. The computer program will enable graduate students in the Aircraft, Helicopter and Missile Design courses to utilize current military specifications for preliminary design and weapon system integration.||en_US|
