## Abstract

Before specific performance problems can be analyzed, it is necessary

to build a foundation and derive general equations which are valid for

every problem. In this connection, the basic elements of kinematics and

dynamics are reviewed in Chapters 1 and 2 and then applied in Chapter 3

to derive the equations of motion for rocket-powered vehicles as well as

vehicles propelled by air-breathing jet engines. Special effort is devoted

to clarifying the basic concepts of thrust and aerodynamic force.

It is well known from Classical Mechanics that the translational motion

of a body is described by the equation of linear momentum while the

rotational motion is governed by the equation of angular momentum.

Although stability and control analyses require that the translational

and rotational motions be considered simultaneously, trajectory studies

can be simplified by means of engineering hypotheses whose effect is to

uncouple the equation of linear momentum from the equation of angular

momentum. In this connection, after the vectorial equations governing

the trajectory of a vehicle in both an inertial reference frame and a

reference frame rigidly associated with the Earth are established, the corresponding scalar equations are derived in Chapter 4 with reference to a

uniform gravitational field and in Chapter 5 with reference to a central

gravitational field. Although Volume I is concerned with the flat Earth

model only, the equations pertaining to flight over a spherical Earth are

included in order to make the general discussion complete.
