Abstract:

This report provides details of the program, WakeData, including a basic user manual and some of the theory used to develop the program. WakeData was developed to convert the vast amounts of data generated by Computational Fluid Dynamics codes into a form that is compatible with FlightLab, the helicopter simulation environment used by DSTO. The development of this program is seen as the first step in the development of a risk reduction tool for future First of Class Flight Trials that will be conducted by the ADF.
