Numerical testing of flight stability of spin-stabilized artillery projectiles

Leszek Baranowski
The paper presents results of numerical research on the effect of the twist rate, muzzle velocity, Magnus moment and firing disturbances (cross and range wind) on the stability of flight of a Denel 155 mm artillery projectile (Assegai M2000 Series) for flat and steep trajectories.
Keywords: spin-stabilized projectile; flight stability; Magnus moment
