Nike Hercules Rocksim Design File

Comments: Designed for the participants of NARCON 1998, just to show how a complex design might be created. Originally designed using RockSim version 4.0.

Notice that the cluster of tubes in the booster are inside a fake tube that has almost no length. While the Cd of this model is difficult to calculate, it does simulate just fine.

Designer: Tim Van Milligan - See my web site at:
