The Data from Aeromechanics Test and Analytics - Management and Analysis Package DATAMAP was designed and programmed as a computer software tool for data management and processing of large, time-based data bases. Particular attention is given to rotorcraft-related analyses. The package will process data stored in two basic formats. The first format is that used for the Operational Loads Survey OLS test data base and anticipated for use in planned flight test programs. The second format is more general it accommodates various data structures common to analytical data bases. This particular input capability is demonstrated by an interface between the Rotorcraft Flight Simulation Program C81 and DATAMAP. The package transfers selected data to a large, direct access disc file and maintains the data on a semi-permanent basis. Data are retrieved from this file, processed, and displayed interactively or in batch. Plot output is generated on a Tektronix 4014 or an incremental plotter e.g., Calcomp. A small sample of available processing options includes amplitude spectrum, harmonic analysis, digital filtering, auto-spectral density, frequency response function, acoustic analyses, and blade static pressure and normal force coefficient derivations.
