R S St. John: 609. Weight Growth Factor - An Example Analysis. In: 26th Annual Conference, Boston, Massachusetts, May 1-4, pp. 23, Society of Allied Weight Engineers, Inc., Boston, Massachusetts, 1967.



The establishment of weight growth early in a preliminary vehicle design phase is a recognized requirement. Frequently this requirement is sacrificed in lieu of the time and manpower required to develop the necessary engineering tools for performing the weight growth analysis. The growth factor analysis method presented here enables a single engineer to evaluate vehicle weight sensitivity to performance alternatives.
