On the Stability of a Spinning Projectile

P. C. Rath, J. P. Sharma


Stability problem both for small and large yawing of a spinning projectile has been discussed. In the latter case criterion for stability of steady conically yawing motion has been obtained. Particularly it has been proved that with a tilting moment coefficient of the type micro(delta)-betaohm/sup2/4[1-4qs(1-cosdelta)] the motion of a shell in steady state is stable like an equivalent top only when q>=0.
