The Simulations sub-team focuses on reducing the margin of error in estimated launch behavior by using multiple software programs to construct rocket designs and model flight behaviors.

Rocket Designing

Members design rockets piece by piece while the programs used by RRPL simultaneously construct a primary model of rocket behavior.

Flight Modeling

After the rocket’s flight, the recorded experimental data can be compared with the computational results to produce a simulation of the rocket’s launch behavior. With each additional flight, the new data is added to adjust this model.
