Abstract:

A Users Guide for the computer code used in the fighter design case study of the Advanced Transonic Technology ATT program is presented. The design code includes a 3D transonic wing-body-canard analysis program linked to a numerical optimization routine and a two-dimensional strip boundary layer program. The input data required is described in detail and samples of the output are presented. The purpose of the ATT program was to develop and validate a new transonic wing design procedure using the numerical optimization technique. The new procedure was used to design both a transport and a fighter configuration. Because the missions and design requirements of a fighter and transport are so different, the design procedure was developed along parallel lines. Lockheed-Georgia Co. developed the transport design procedure, and Grumman Aerospace Corp. developed the fighter design procedure. This document is the second part of a two-part volume of detailed Users Guides for the computer programs produced by Lockheed-Georgia Company and Grumman Aerospace Corp. of a new transonic wing design procedure.
