Keywords: Sabot opening process, motion anaysis, FSAPDS projectiles


For FSAPDS projectile, the trajectory and stability are dependent on different forces indifferent phases of the motion. During the first phase gravity, aerodynamic drag along withpropellant gas force affect the motion. The motion is influenced by shock wave and mechanicalforce in sabot opening phase and the effect of time lag during opening of sabots also forms partof this work.
