W J Moran: 909. Performance Methods for Aircraft Synthesis. 1972.



The aircraft configuration synthesis process is described from the viewpoint of the performance engineer as a contribution to an interdisciplinary examination of the process. In addition , the performance engineer’s task in the synthesis loop is described, as well as two computer programs being developed at the Fort Worth operation of Convair Aerospace. The first of these programs, MAPP (Mission Analysis and Performance Program), contains methods for computation of most types of performance data. The second, IMP (Interim Mission Program), is a general mission integration procedure. IMP is intended for eventual merger with MAPP to form the performance module of an integrated configuration synthesis system for conventional aircraft. The interfaces needed by the proposed performance module with other modules in the system are summarized.
