Ares V g-loads
« on: 06/27/2008 09:09 AM »
Hi everybody!
Is someone able to help me in finding expected values for ARES V max g-loads ("quasi-static" and dynamic, axial and lateral) during a Lunar mission? 
Thanks so much
Von Carlo.

Still apt to change, AFAIK. I believe I read somewhere that the new six-engine configuration would produce 4.3g at MECO. But since that design doesn't meet the performance specification it will need to be changed... again...
