Welcome to the Water Rocket Forum, sponsored by The Water Rocket Achievement World Record Association.

Since our founding in 2003, we've become the largest, most sophisticated and ground breaking group supporting you, the serious water rocket flyer! Whether you are a beginner or an expert, the WRA2 has something for everyone.

A water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass. The pressure vessel (the engine of the rocket) is constructed from thin plastic or other non metallic materials (usually a used plastic soft drink bottle) weighing 1,500 grams or less. The water is forced out by compressed air. It is an example of Newton's third law of motion.

Simulators

Post links to simulators in this thread. Please include a brief description stating weather it is freeware, shareware, commercial (indicate if a trial period is available) or home brew. These links will be compiled and placed on the WRA2 links page for easy access. We can also host downloads for simulators if needed.

I guess I get to be first.

DOD based water rocket simulator. Works very well with DOS based systems like WIN98. Some functions (like 3D graphing) in NT based systems like XP do not work well. Has anyone tried this on VISTA yet? Very accurate simulator. I recommend it.

This is a very interesting simulator with extremely detailed theory background.


Cheers,

Sorry, I've failed to mention that theoretical calculations are confirmed by experimental data: http://www.et.byu.edu/~wheeler/benchtop/thrustcurve.php

Compuserve has been shut down. Does this simulator have a new home?

I posted a copy of the zipfile a week or two ago, must be in this thread or nearby?

Openrocket is open source, you may enter the densities of construction materials and thicknesses. That lets you know the CG and CP.
I do not think you can use this as a flight simulator because it was made for solid fuel rocket, but if you measure the thrust and the time a of water-rocket you might be able to enter such data as if it was a custom engine and so graph it

and very important ... is FREE :D

Openrocket es de código abierto , te permite ingresar las densidades de los materiales de construcción y espesores. Eso te permite saber el CG y CP.
No creo que se pueda usar como simulador de vuelo porque está hecho para cohetes de combustible sólido, pero si se mide el empuje y el tiempo de propulsión de un cohete de agua tal vez se podría ingresar ese dato como el de un motor personalizado y así graficarlo

y muy importante... es GRATIS :D
