Abstract

Jet flow is one of the important factors affecting the vibration, initial disturbance and firing dispersion of Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS). In this research, based on the rocket gas jet dynamics, MLRS launch dynamics theory and transfer matrix method for multibody system, a physical model of jet flow model and a MLRS launch dynamics model considering the multiple launch rocket device and the launch of rocket are built. The launching dynamic process of rocket jet flow of MLRS is numerical simulated by using the technology of overset mesh and the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods. The nephogram of mach number and contour map of velocity are obtained. The impact effect force on the air-facing surface of rocker launcher after the rocket slides and leaves the directional barrel is acquired. Regarding the calculated data of impact force to MLRS as external force, the MLRS launch dynamics equation is solved by using the transfer matrix method for multibody system. Finally, the dynamics response of MLRS under the effect of jet flow is analyzed.
