Paper Abstract

This paper describes the flight characteristics of rocket under the various environmental conditions, especially the wind effect on the flight of rocket during burning. 280 rounds of small solid propellant free rocket were fired, and the coordinates and height of burnt out point on the trajectories were recorded by means of Cinetheodolite. The results of theoretical and experimental study showed that the wind effects of rocket during burning could be able to compute introducing an empirical factor T (Tashiro's factor) into the equations of motion as particle.
