Abstract:

An investigation has been conducted to demonstrate the use of the Greens function method to study rotor wake effects on helicopter hubpylon flow. This report consists of two volumes which document the theoretical formulation and the use of the digital computer program SHAPES Subsonic Helicopter Aerodynamics Program with Effects of Separation. Volume II, The Users Manual, describes the structure and use of Program SHAPES. SHAPES is written in FORTRAN IV for operation on the CDC 6600 digital computer system at the Applied Technology Laboratory, U.S. Army Research and Technology Laboratories AVRADCOM, Fort Eustis, VA. The Users Manual Volume II contains detailed information for preparing an input data deck and interpreting the computed data a discussion of various subroutines, flow charts, common storage and definition of FORTRAN variables sample cases to illustrate the program output and a FORTRAN listing of the program.
