Abstract : A method is derived for determining the near optimum spin scale factor and the near maximum time step for integration of the trajectories of spinning symmetrical missiles using the Frick slip frame. The trajectories of a typical spin-stabilized projectile and a fast spinning statically stable missile were computed in order to evaluate the method. The results of this study indicate that the technique is valid for missiles with moderate yaw. (Author)
