Abstract : The FORTRAN Programs used for the processing of current meter analysis at the University of Rhode Island are described in detail. The programs are run on the IBM 370/155 computer. Remote access to this system is achieved via a Cope 1200 batch station on the Narragansett Bay Campus. Graphic output is done on a Broomall M-2000 drum plotter. These programs perform vector averaging, smoothing, spectral analysis and handle the graphic display of components and progressive vector diagrams. Data may be accessed on disk, tape or cards and may be in Cartesian or polar form. Sample output figures are included to show the relationship of input variables and output performance. (Author)
