Abstract : The purpose of this program is to facilitate rapid calculation of loads at separation planes on circular cross-section vehicles. The program output yields values of M/P, K, and N where: M = Bending moment, P = Axial load (compression), K = Loading index for maximum tank compression, and N = Loading index for maximum latch tension. No loads are submitted to this program. Only section properties are submitted and the computer then calculates M/P, K and N. (Author)
