Abstract : A computer program for the IBM 7030 computer which calculates weight, center of gravity, and axial and transverse moments of inertia of projectiles is presented herein. Projectiles to which the program applies are assumed to be composites of right circular ogives and truncated cones. All formulas used in the program are given with their detailed derivations. A FORTRAN listing of the program and subroutines is provided, together with flow charts, an input guide, and sample input and output. (Author)
