Presented at the 15th AIAA Aerodynamic Decelerator Systems Conference, Toulouse, France, June 9-11, 1999
1) maximum opening shock versus overall parachute size scaling (nominal/average openings and line-dumped openings -- they have a different size scaling relation);
2) maximum opening shock versus slider inertia scaling;
3) experimental time of maximum shock versus theoretical time of maximum shock.
