Abstract : A unified method is presented for analyzing the gross effects of friction, rod pull, and ground support on the motions and reactions in an artillery piece. A variety of models are presented in order that the changes in these effects may be studied as a funcion of configuration. All models are the simplest possible geometrically and as such do not permit investigation of second order effects. (Author)
