Abstract:

A Mach box digital computer program, MBOX, has been developed and written for surfaces with trailing edge control surfaces. It is a very versatile and reliable method for obtaining steady and unsteady supersonic aerodynamic coefficients that may be used in response and flutter analyses of rather general lifting surfaces. Wing configurations can include those with folded tips, cranked leading and trailing edges, and supersonic or subsonic leading and trailing edges. At the option of the user, MBOX will also calculate steady or unsteady lifting pressure distributions, and if the generalized mass and stiffness matrices are provided, it will obtain solutions of flutter equations in one computer run.
