Calhoun: The NPS Institutional Archive Theses and Dissertations Thesis Collection Computer programs for helicopter data display and conceptual design. Approved for public release, distribution unlimitedThis thesis allows a person with access to a computer that uses th= FORTRAN language and that is equipped with the DI5SPLA software system the ability to select and graphically portray for analysis the critical design parameters of actual : Gary M. Bishop. HESCOMP is a helicopter sizing and performance computer program very similar in format and operation to VASCOMP II, the V/STOL Aircraft Sizing and Performance Computer Program. This similarity is dictated by the requirement to obtain compatibility in both usage and results when using HESCOMP and VASCOMP II in helicopter-V/STOL aircraft comparative design . This textbook presents the process of aircraft conceptual design as seen in industry aircraft design groups. It contains design methods, illustrations, tips, explanations and equations, and has extensive appendices with key data for design.
design areas involve a cycle of calculations and decisions in order to create a more refined aircraft design. NASA Ames Research Center has created a computer program which does the calculation part of the conceptual design series. This design program, called ACSYNT (AirCraft SYNThesis design program. The technical books below have proven useful during years of aircraft conceptual design experience in industry and during the writing of AIRCRAFT DESIGN: A Conceptual Approach, the RDS design software, and Dan Raymer's Simplified Aircraft Design . Jump-start the conceptual design process by importing imagery and topographic data from USGS to view the design in a real-world setting. Drape imagery on TIN surfaces for quick 3D surface visualization. You can readily view the site’s capabilities in any location to gain insight in the design. Aircraft Design Software. Computer Technology. Next page. Designing new civil air transportation has been made far easier thanks to aircraft design software that inspects, modifies, and integrates the engineering analysis process. In the s, Ames Research Center initiated an endeavor to greatly improve the conceptual design .

Predicting accurate helicopter-hover performance requires a sophisticated computer analysis. Two programs in Table 1. PROP and A, were correlated with an extensive data base of isolated helicopter-rotor test data, prior to the AHP SSEB, to provide a calibration factor on two separate computer . 4 Chapter 1 Introduction to Computers and Programming Figure The ENIAC computer (courtesy of U.S. Army Historic Computer Images) Figure A lab technician holds a modern microprocessor (photo courtesy of Intel Corporation) Main Memory You can think of main memoryas the computer’s work is where the computer stores a program while the program is running, as well as the data. Teaching the science and the technology of programming as a unified discipline that shows the deep relationships between programming paradigms. This innovative text presents computer programming as a unified discipline in a way that is both practical and scientifically sound. The book .
