A computer program was developed for analysis of contour deviations as a function of the thermal environment and the physical properties of materials used in solar concentrators of an inflatable rigidizable construction. The program was applied to a study of the effects of changing various design parameters such as surface thermal properties, core density and concentrator dimensions. The detail effort consisted of establishing a digital computer program suitable for the IBM Model 7094 Fortran II Language. Instructions for use of this program are presented. Two complete source decks have been delivered to the Air Force Aero Propulsion Laboratory. Author
