Abstract

"A computer program has been developed to simulate the basic mechanics and gas dynamics associated with launching a solid propellant rocket from a recoilless rifle. This program, entitled "KICKIT," may be used to predict the performance and evaluate many of the pertinent design parameters of both conventional recoilless rifles and a recoilless rocket launcher system. This program is a valuable analytical tool which enables the designer either to optimize the system design or predict the behavior of the system under off-design conditions"--Abstract, Page ii.
