Abstract : This tape contains two source computer programs. They are named the Roll Plane and Bent Plate Programs. The Roll Plane program can be used to predict an antenna radiation pattern for a fuselage mounted antenna. The aircraft's fuselage, wings and horizontal stabilizers can be modeled in the program. The Bent Plate program can be used to show the electromagnetic scattering effects from a flat or bent plate. One antenna or an array of antennas can be mounted near the plate. Both programs will compute information necessary for antenna pattern plots. If the plots are desired, a magnetic tape drive is necessary to run the program. The generated tapes from these programs can be used on a California Computer Products, Inc's CALCOMP pen plotter, model 763 to produce the desired antenna patterns.....Software description: These programs were written in the FORTRAN programming language for implementation on a CDC 6600 computer using the SCOPE 3.3 operating system.
