• LinPAC
Program name: LinPACLinear Projectile Aerodynamic Coefficients
Version/Year: Version 5.0.0, 2018.
Capability: Calculation of static and dynamic derivatives of aerodynamic coefficients of classical projectiles, rockets and missiles with one, two and three wing sections including ailerons and flaps, and body alone with different nose shapes including spike for small angles of attack. Easy entering of input data through the GUI.
Purpose: Quick estimation of aerodynamics coefficients for aerodynamic analysis and design of various types of unguided projectiles (spin and fin stabilized) and missile configurations. Estimation of loads on projectiles and their components.
Method: Combined, empirical and potential method (semi-empirical).
Origin: Original development based on published literature and own experience, and data obtained from wind tunnel model tastings.
Platform: Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10
Required software: None
Authors: Dr Miodrag Curcin
