Abstract:

The report describes the STOL Aerodynamic Methods Computer Program, which is intended to aid the engineer in the design and analysis of STOL aircraft employing internally ducted jet flaps, externally blown jet flaps, and mechanical flap systems with vectored thrust. The program provides capabilities to predict either the overall aerodynamic characteristics of a configuration or the aerodynamics of the following Jet-wing in or out of ground effect wing and vectored jets fuselage in the flow field of the jet-wing andor vectored jets empennage in the flow field of the jet-wing andor vectored jets. The program includes the capabilities for investigating the effects of arbitray wing planforms with arbitrary high lift systems, including partial span flaps, slats, and jets arbitrary camber, twist, and jet deflection fuselages with arbitrary cross-sections and upsweep arbitrary empennage arrangements, including conventional tails, mid-tails, and T-tails and a capability to calculate the off-body flow field induced by the jet-wing andor vectored at arbitrary points.
