This report presents the interim results of a study aimed at extending cost estimating techniques developed and demonstrated under a previous contract. The previous study provided a trade study and a system study costing method for empennage elements. During the initial phase of the current study, these capabilities have been extended to include all aerodynamic surfaces horizontal stabilizer, vertical stabilizer, canards treated as a stabilizer, and wings, including secondary structure. This volume provides a handbook as a guide to the trade study cost estimating technique. The function of the computer program is described. The program output format and the input data requirement and its organization are discussed and reference is provided to the cost estimating logic involved.
