Optimization of the 3rd Stage Rocket Trajectory Using Genetic Algorithm

:10.22362/ijcert/2017/v4/i6/xxxx [UNDER PROCESS]

To optimize the third stage of a space launch vehicle, powered by Liquid Rocket Engine (LRE) and also to optimize the fuel efficiency by varying injection pressure and gravity turn. The space launch vehicle trajectory is designed analytically by using the general governing equations of the rocket. These trajectories are solved with the implementation of the genetic algorithm. The trajectories are designed and simulated with the commercial software MATLAB, furthermore the relation between parameters and generate MATLAB Coding to simulate the trajectory of the vehicle at 3rd stage. The governing equations are solved using Chebyshev polynomials subroutine and Lagrange polynomial equation available in MATLAB software. The variation of velocity, specific impulse, time is plotted for different parameter (injection pressure) values of the spacecraft

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
