"Computer Program for Analysis, Design and Optimization of Dynamics, Propulsion and Kinematics of Multistage Rockets"
A computer program is designed in MATLAB with approximately 20,000 lines of codes to analyze, design and optimize the propulsion, dynamics, thermodynamics, and kinematics of any serial and parallel multistage rocket. It evaluates the performance of the rocket which is previously devised by the user and finds the "optimum trajectory" via a myriad of computations which are done through sophisticated algorithms using numerical methods and incremental integrations. New techniques are applied to calculate the optimal parameters for the engine and design the optimal pitch program. It can be used for actual launch operations and design projects as well as educational and research purposes.
