Free Rocketry Software and Web Services -- Discussions and Contributions
Let's get this party started. I'd like to see a list of freely-available software and web-based services for rocketry. Ideally, this thread should be long on listings, short on chatter; if you want to comment on or review a product listed here, please do so in another thread. It would not be inappropriate to post a link to the review threads here though.
I'll start by listing the software on my own site:
Shroud Calculator and Template Generator
Centering Ring Template Generator
VCP - Rocket Stability Program
Rogers Aeroscience RASAero Aerodynamic Analysis and Flight Simulation Software
Rocketry related software for PDAs running PalmOS
wRASP - Rocket Altitude Simulation Program (RASP)
WINROC - Altitude prediction software
Thrust Curve Tool
There are several good tools and calculators here:
Decent Rate (x2)
Max Lift Weight
Engine Mount/Bulkhead Generator (also does fin marking guides and paper transistions)
MRDR-2: 2 Station Alt/Az Data Reduction Program
Common Finish Compatibility Chart
Body Tube Transition Creator
This is a good thread so I added Rocketry to the title and made it a sticky.
So that explains the foreign substance all over my keyboard this morning...
For the uber-lazy among us, it would be nice for a mod/admin to distill all provided links into the top post.
I'll let Craig do that since he's the mod for this area. ;)
Actually, Solo is a whole site mod so he has the ability to do it as well.
Good idea, and now that we have some links to work with, I'll start filtering and collating a list. One thing to note: "Top Post" can be either the first, or last, entry depending on how you view your messages. If your prefs display the messages oldest-first, then the "Top Post" is the oldest message. If your prefs display newest-first, then the "Top Post" is the last message.
What I may do is create a new thread for the list, and keep this one for the discussions and any new link posts.
ADDENDUM: Note the new thread title.
As more links are located and posted, I'll divide them into related groups.
Thanks fellers. A new thread sounds like a good idea...top and bottom will be the same :)
