dc.description.abstractThis thesis describes the modification of six computer programs on the Micro VAX/2000/CAD/CAE workstation. Three of the programs, NEW_DOUBLE, NEW_PANEL, and NEW_ VOR, were originally transferred to the Aeronautical Engineering VAX System Server by LCDR John Campbell. Two of the programs (SUB and SUPER), both vortex lattice method programs, were placed in the VAX system by Mr. Rich Margason of the Langley Research Center. None of the above five programs had any graphics facility. The sixth program, a viscous interaction program was transferred/adapted to the VAX system by the author of this report. Extensive modifications were subsequently made to these programs to enhance their user interface. In addition, all the programs have been adapted to provide interactive graphical/printed output. Further­ more, program NEW_DOUBLE was modified to accept any arbitrary symmetri­cal shaped body. Lastly, NEW_PANEL was altered to interface with a viscous interaction effects program in which the boundary layer characteristics are determined. All user inputs in NEW_DOUBLE, NEW_PANEL and NEW_VOR were backed up with interactive checking routines. The programs are intended to be used by aeronautics/astronautics engineering students in basic and advanced courses in aerodynamics.
