Missile Trajectory Simulation in Vertical Plane


Article Preview

In this paper, Newton's laws of motion and momentum theorem are the theoretical basis. The equations of motion in the vertical plane are the calculation basis. In order to get the ballistic and numerical solution of motion parameters of the missile, the Runge-Kutta method and matlab are used to solve the missile Trajectory. Firstly, this paper builds the trajectory model of missile in vertical plane. Secondly, this paper chooses missile control method. Thirdly, the Runge-Kutta method and matlab are used to verify the correctness. And to further analyze the law of motion parameters changed with time.
