Abstract

Recent investigations into the effects of a constant atmospheric drag force on an essentially circular satellite orbit have led to an analytical expression for the resulting orbit, which is obviously not exactly circular, but so close to it that profitable simplifications can be made in its derivation. In the present paper several of the resulting type orbits are analyzed and compared.
