Abstract : The report documents a digital computer simulation of solid propellant breech-launched rockets. The equations describing the system are presented and solved by Runge-Kutta methods programmed in Fortran for the Univac Solid State 90 digital computer. The computer program, its input and output formats, and comparison with experimental performance are also presented. It is also shown how the program can be used to simulate certain other ballistic devices. (Author)
