Exterior Ballistics: A New Approach presents the exterior ballistics of point-mass projectiles based on the analytical G-drag functions (G1, G2, � G7, G8, Siacci�s G-function, etc.) and on the �projectile trajectory-streamline and Snell�s law� model that is a fundamental result obtained by applying, to the flight of projectiles, the postulate of Sir Isaac Newton on the wave nature of moving bodies and his interpretation of the Snell�s law on refraction of waves. The impressive outcomes obtained solving exterior ballistics problems employing Snell�s law demonstrate that the flight of objects can be quantitatively described using wave properties of particles.
The WONDERS of Using Snell�s Law in Exterior Ballistics
Exterior Ballistics: A New Approach is a unique book in the literature of exterior ballistics for the original methods introduced to solve the exterior ballistics problems and particularly for the use of Snell�s law in exterior ballistics. Backed with in-depth discussions based on comprehensive research and study, Exterior Ballistics: A New Approach provides original solutions in solving exterior ballistics problems especially employing the �projectile trajectory-streamline and Snell�s law� model. The use of Snell�s law simplifies the ballistics calculations reducing them to simple mathematics operations.
Exterior Ballistics: A New Approach is an excellent reference book that provides answers to problems encountered in the practice of motion of unguided projectiles fired by artillery and small arms.
The book has around 80 solved exterior ballistics problems that illustrate the theoretical topics, guide and help the reader to solve similar and new ballistics problems. There are included four compact types of original universal PC programs that enable the reader to solve any exterior ballistics problem as well as the ballistics problems related with fire control of unguided projectiles. Exterior Ballistics: A New Approach is an informative book highly recommended to students, professors, and novice, military students and faculty, as well as to experienced ballisticians.
Gjergj Klimi (George Klimi)received his B.A. and Ph. D. in Physics from University of Tirana in Albania. He currently is assistant professor of Mathematics at NYC College of Technology (Brooklyn).
His research is related with the application of Physics, Mathematics, and Probability in military field, and particularly in Exterior and Terminal Ballistics where he had written numerous papers and a book about the applications of probability in anti-aircraft shooting.
From 1970 till 1993 he had been a professor of Physics & Mathematics at the Military Academy of Tirana. In 80�s he served as Physics Chair at the Military Academy of Tirana, and was an adjunct professor at the Military Academy of General Staff in Tirana. He taught Physics, Calculus, Probability applied in anti-aircraft firing and Applications of Physics in conventional and nuclear explosions.
In 90�s Gjergj Klimi used to work at the Committee of Science and Technology and at the Ministry of Higher Education and Research in Albania as Director of Tempus Office, responsible for the implementation of the European Community Programs to restructure the Higher Education in Albania.
