Abstract:

A version of BLUGTAB able to run interactively on a Zenith-2 48 PC is now operative. The program is called ZBTAB to indicate its relation to BLUGTAB and its ability to run on the Zenith computer. The main difference between ZBTAB and the UNIVAC counterpart is that the Z-248 version does not include the option to access databases. The results of tests made on an Indian Ocean parameter set for three frequencies and a sample interactive session are included in this report. Comparison of numerical output from ZBTAB and the UNIVAC version of BLUGTAB shows less than 0.02 difference between bottom-loss values. The BLUGTAB program generates bottom-loss values versus grazing angle for up to six frequencies at a time. It allows both interactive input and input from various databases resident on the UNIVAC system. The PC version of the program does not have access to these databases and can only operate in an interactive input mode. jhd
