This will lead to an analysis of the stability of spin stabilization. The assumption will be that the spin is about the x axis, p ¼ X; q ¼ Dq; r ¼ Dr ð2:30Þ where Dq and Dr are supposed to be small with respect to the spin speed V. The first equation in Eq. 19) under the assumptions of Eq. 30) becomes Á Ixx p þ DqDrðIzz À Iyy Þ ¼ 0 ð2:31Þ Under the assumption that the product of two small quantities DqDr is negligible, we see that p is nearly zero and that Eq. 29) is approximately true for the perturbed as well as for the basic motion because p_ in Eq.

For now it is enough to note that when three factors must multiply to zero, Copyright 2004 by Marcel Dekker, Inc. All Rights Reserved. as in Eq. 21), the equation will be satisfied if any one of the three factors vanishes. For example, if R were to be zero, the product in Eq. 21) would certainly be zero. This represents the so-called trivial solution. The assumed solution would then simply imply r(t) = 0, which should have been an obvious possibility from the beginning. Another possible factor to vanish in Eq.

All Rights Reserved. All rigid bodies have three orthogonal directions in the body that are the principal directions. If the x–y–z axes are aligned with the principal directions, then the axes become principal axes. When it is reasonable to assume that the x–y–z axes are principal axes, the equations of motion take on a highly simplified form. A. Basic Dynamic Principles The basic dynamic principles for a rigid body can be stated in a form that is valid for any coordinate frame. ~ ¼ dP=dt ~ ¼ m~ F a ð2:11Þ ~c =dt; ½Hc Š ¼ ½Ic Š½xŠ ~ s ¼ dH ð2:12Þ Note that because Eq.
