This is machine translation Translated by. For each configuration, stability coefficients and derivatives are output at each angle of attack specified. For supersonic analysis, additional parameters can be input.

The missing data points will be filled with the values for the first alpha, since these data points are meant to be used for all alpha values. By default, only the data for the aircraft is output, but additional configurations can be output:.
While the original DIGDAT program has been left relatively untouched, there has been a new front-end created that will allow the user to name the input file with something more significant than FOR It bridges the gap between theory and practice by including a combination datfom pertinent discussion and proven practical methods.

USAF (United States Air Force) Stability and Control DATCOM (Data Compendium)
They also provide a possible datocm in areas not currently covered by ESDU. Incidence angles can also be added to the wing and horizontal tail. DATCOM does not require that the udaf for the aircraft has to be the nose of the aircraft; any arbitrary point will do, but all ksaf the dimensions need to be referenced from that point.
There have also been hooks placed in the DIGDAT that allow for alternate outputs in addition to the original output format, which is columns wide and slightly user abusive if you intend to import the data into another application. This article includes a list of referencesbut its sources remain unclear because it has insufficient inline citations. The book is intended to be used for preliminary design purposes before the acquisition of test data.
This problem can be addressed by approximating the twin vertical tails as a single equivalent vertical tail mounted to the fuselage.
Digital DATCOM requires an input file containing a geometric description of an aircraft, and outputs its corresponding dimensionless stability derivatives according to the specified flight conditions. The book is intended to be used for preliminary design purposes before the acquisition of test data. A spectrum of methods is presented, ranging from very simple and easily applied techniques to quite accurate and thorough procedures. There has been some research in using Digital DATCOM in conjunction with wind tunnel studies to predict aerodynamics of structurally impaired uszf.
All Examples Functions More. Raw results from the code provide good correlation ratcom wind tunnel data at very low angles of attack, but accuracy deteriorates rapidly as the angle of attack increases.
Toolbox Toolbox home Aerodynamics: The user can specify whether the Mach number and altitude varies together, the Mach number varies at a constant altitude, or the altitude varies at a constant Mach number. The new input file format allows the user to place comments in the input file.
The United States Air Force Stability and Datcomm DATCOM is a collection, correlation, codification, and recording of best knowledge, opinion, and judgment in the area of aerodynamic stability and control prediction methods. The canard must be specified as the forward lifting surface i. Retrieved from ” https: For any given configuration and flight condition, a complete set of stability and control derivatives can be determined without resort to outside datdom.
This problem can be addressed by superposition of lifting surfaces through the experimental input option. For complete aircraft configurations, downwash data is also included. Comparatively simple methods are presented in complete form, while the more complex methods are often handled by reference to separate treatments. Explore the A-Z Index.
