• PTS-2DoF
Program name: PTS-2DoF - Projectile Motion Simulation – Two DoF model
Version/Year: Version 1, 2012.
Capability: Calculation of projectile ballistic and straight line trajectory by two degrees of freedom. Fast entering input data through GUI.
Purpose: Calculation of basic quantities of ballistic or straight line trajectory of various types of unguided and guided projectiles in vertical plane with and without rocket assistance. Program contains fifteen coded drag coefficients of typical projectile shapes like artillery projectiles, rockets, guided missiles, bullets and mortars plus user definition possibility. It is very useful in preliminary design of projectiles and missiles and for fast checking the trajectory parameters. The results are automatically plotted.
Method: Numerical integration of two degrees of freedom equations of motion of projectile as a rigid body with or without rocket motor assistance.
Origin: Original development based on published literature and own experience.
Platform: Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10
