Abstract : The report contains all the necessary information to run the lifting three dimensional potential flow program. The program is written in Fortran IV language and is set up to be run on the IBM 370 system. The input considerations discussed in this report are: the body surface, Kutta points, off-body points, and other pertinent information for the lifting sections. Load sheets and detailed deck set-ups are illustrated. The output interpretation and the required external storage are also discussed. A check list for case set up is provided, and a sample test case and its output are shown as an example.
