Abstract:

This report is a part of the documentations which describe the complete development of an STTR Phase 2 effort entitled, Development of the AerodynamicAeroservoelastic Modules in ASTROS. This report is one of four manuals that comprise the final report. The remaining reports consist of the ZAERO Users Manual Volume 1, the ZAERO Applications Manual Volume 3 and the ZAERO Theoretical Manual Volume 4. ASTROS is the seamless integration of the ZAERO module into ASTROS. As an aerodynamic enhancement to ASTROS, ZAERO is the ZONA aerodynamic module, unified for all Mach number ranges. This manual assumes the reader is familiar with the ASTROS system Version 10.0, its terminology and user interface. It provides the complete user interface to the ASTROS system required for preparation of input data. First, an overview of the ZAERO software is presented. Second, the executive control options are described. Third, a complete and comprehensive description of the bulk data input is presented. Fourth, ZAERO modeling guidelines are provided with detailed descriptions for proper aerodynamic, geometry and spline input. Finally, the output description of ZAERO is presented with output samples.
