Masters Theses

Abstract

"A program was written for the determination of explosive performance parameters on the Royal-McBee LGP-30 electronic digital computer. The method developed by Dr. M. A. Cook was used, which is based on the thermohydrodynamic theory of detonation. This theory and the specific equations developed by Cook are presented.

General statements are made in regard to computer programming, and specific information given concerning the programming concepts used for this particular problem. A detailed explanation of the program operation is given, together with the tabular data required for its use.

Equations are presented for an analysis of the effects of roundoff error on the results of this program, and an example of the use of these equations is given. Methods and examples of the use of the computer program in performing error investigations are also presented.

The coding sheets, flow charts, and written descriptions are included for each portion of the program, since it was written in such a manner as to be readily modified, and this information is essential if modifications are to be made"--Abstract, page ii.
