        Water Rockets Calculators & Applets

        WATER ROCKET SIMULATION - C. Heath, ManageSoft Corp, Victoria, Australia VERY VERY EXTENSIVE.
        Water Rocket Simulation
          "...This page does a numerical simulation of the entire flight of your rocket...Now including Bruce Berggren's air pulse formula! The air pulse is taken as an instantaneous impulse, so the acceleration curves don't show it, but the velocity curve takes a jump upwards on burnout... Also with Launch Tube simulation, including the ability to use a launch tube of a different size from the nozzle, like with Scott's T-Nozzles..."
          Water Rocket Simulation INPUT Values include
            "...Rocket Volume; Water Volume; Pressure; Nozzel Size;
            Bottle Diameter; Coefficient Drag; Dry Mass; etc..."
          Water Rocket Simulation OUTPUT values include:
            "...Launch and thrust phase; Burnout; Coast; Crashdown;
            Altitude Graph; Speed Graph; Acceleration Graph; etc..."
        For more information see Water Rocket Launcher Home Page or Clifford Heath's Home Page



        WATER ROCKET SIMULATION - Water-Rockets.com, Redmond, Washington VERY EXTENSIVE.
        Water Rocket Simulation
          "...The simulation predicts how much thrust the motor will produce, how quickly it will accelerate, how fast it goes, and how high it will fly. Profiles of all of these values are calculated at a given time interval, and can be plotted for analysis and consideration..."
        Water Rocket Simulation INPUT Values include:
          "...Delta Time; Motor Diameter; Thrust Coefficient; Pressure;
          Nozzle Diameter; Motor Length; Dry Weight; etc..."
