Abstract : The Viscous Effects On Complex Configurations (VECC) program was a three task effort to improve preliminary aerodynamic prediction and analysis on high speed, arbitrary-shaped configurations. The first task was to incorporate a Newtonian streamline tracing code, 'QUADSTREAM', into a Graphical User Interface (GUl) system. The second task consisted of upgrades to the Supersonic-Hypersonic Arbitrary Body Program (SHABP). The third task, Pre-/Post-Processing, encompassed the development of the geometry modeling/display module, SHABP pre-processor, and the line plotting program. The improvements to SHABP included: level 2 viscous analysis (including aeroheating), shock shape/flowfield analysis, control deflections, and trimmed aerodynamic predictions. The VECC program is documented in two reports, (1) the program final report, WL-TR-95-3059, (2) the software user's manual, WL-Th-95-3060. (AN)
