Abstract : Although the major development work on VSR (Vibration of a Spinning Rocket) was previously done, further refinements were made in VSR under this project and the program was used to analyze case studies pertinent to the parameters of interest. A definition of the current capabilities of VSR and its applicability to this project is included.
