A document describes work on the origin of Coriolis force and estimating Coriolis force and torque applied to the Ares-1 vehicle during its ascent, based on an internal ballistics model for a multi-segmented solid rocket booster (SRB).
This work was done by Ryan M. Mackey and Igor K. Kulikov of Caltech; Vadim Smelyanskiy and Dmitry Luchinsky of Ames Research Center; and Jeb Orr of BD Systems Inc. for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
