Abstract : A FORTRAN computer program was developed to calculate the following physical properties of one sabot petal: the mass, the center of mass, and the complete inertia tensor about the center of mass. Only uniform density sabot petals are permitted. Any sabot segment angle is allowed up to 360 degrees, which is a complete body of revolution. This report includes the theory, the inertia tensor transformation equations, and listing of the program, and an example problem. Keywords: Computer applications; Mathematical modeling.
