The United States Air Force Stability and Control Digital DATCOM is a computer
program that implements the methods contained in the USAF Stability and Control
DATCOM to calculate the static stability, control and dynamic derivative
characteristics of fixed-wing aircraft. 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 values obtained can be used to calculate meaningful aspects of
This toolbox is a basic version which reads Digital DATCOM input file and
displays the result(Digital DATCOM output file) in Scilab Console.
*Download DATCOM.zip and extract it.
*cd <TOOLBOX DIRECTORY>
Enter File-name: example/ex1.inp
//datcom.out file is displayed.
//An example file ex1.inp is contained in example directory.
#The output file is stored as datcom.out in DATCOM(toolbox) directory.
*More features are planned.
*Suggestions, ideas and reviews are welcomed.
