Abstract : A FORTRAN IV computer program is described which determines the local and integrated aerodynamic coefficients from local pressure data taken directly from the output tapes generated by the General Applied Science Laboratory's three-dimensional method of characteristics program. Computational results for a spherically blunted or sharp-nosed body of revolution with or without flare, at angle of attack, may be used. The report includes equations, FORTRAN statements, and examples for using the program. (Author)
