Abstract:

This report describes the capabilities and operation of CONTOUR II, a revision of the surface fitting and mapping program originally developed by Mr. A. Beharell, now at the University of Calgary. The program is designed to fit a geometric surface in three-dimensional space to any given set of coordinate data points. The computed smooth surface is then displayed by drawing specified contours on the Calcomp 936 drum plotter. Although this manual includes material contained in the University of Calgary report on CONTOUR, emphasis has been placed on the input changes and additions made to facilitate the use of this program on the CDC 6000 computer systems for engineering calculations of fluid dynamics problems. Details are presented of the control cards and input data preparation for operation of the program. A sample problem is included. Author
