Computer Modeling of Aerial Shell Ballistics

K.L. and B.J Kosanke 

ABSTRACT: If one has a reasonably accurate computer model, it is usually appropriate (cheaper and faster) to rely primarily on modeled results, supplemented with limited experimental results. The case of aerial shell ballistics is no exception. The mathematical basis for such a ballistics model is derived, and the simplifications and assumptions of the model are considered. The necessary input parameters are developed and some modeling results are presented. Finally, the use of the model is demonstrated by performing a series of calculations, including the effect of mortar tilt angle and wind speed.
