Abstract:

This volume describes the computer program developed for the aerodynamic evaluation of aircraft, including the effects of roughness and damage. The computer code has the capability of assessing the aerodynamic effects of damage, such as rough, bent, and burnt skins, boundary-layer thickness effects, and loss of radomes, panels, doors and covers. Also, the computer code has the capability of analyzing changes in drag due to lift and trim caused by asymmetric loss of parts of the wing or trim surfaces. The computer program is coded in the FORTRAN Extended Version IV language to operate on a CDC 6600 or CYBER 172 computer. The computer code structure is explained and a computer code input utilization is presented along with sample input and output with a FORTRAN source deck listing. Details of the methods, equations, and substantiating data for this computer code are contained in Volume I.
