Abstract : This report documents the current version in the C81 family of rotorcraft flight simulation programs developed by Bell Helicopter Textron. This current version of the digital computer program is referred to as AGAP80. The accompanying program for calculating fully coupled rotor blade mode shapes is called DNAM05, and an associated rotor wake program is called AR9102. The AGAP80 version of C81 was developed by adding some analytical features to the AGAJ76 version and including the ability to generate Data Transfer Files for use by the File Creation Program of DATAMAP. An overview of the computer program capabilities and the principal mathematical models incorporated in the program are given in Volume I of the documentation for the AGAJ76 version of the program. Volume I, the User's Manual, contains detailed information necessary for setting up an input data deck and interpreting the computed data. Volume II, includes a catalog of subroutines and a discussion of programming considerations.
