Digital DATCOM

This computer program calculates static stability, high lift and control, and dynamic derivative characteristics using the methods contained in the USAF (United States Air Force) Stability and Control Datcom (Data Compendium).

Configuration geometry, altitude, and Mach range capabilities are consistent with those accommodated by the Datcom.

The program contains a trim option that computes control deflections and aerodynamic increments for vehicle trim at subsonic Mach numbers.

A more detailed presentation of Datcom is available on the openAE website, as the binaries and source code.

DATCOM is also available here.
