TRACKED LEVITATED RESEARCH VEHICLE DYNAMICS SIMULATION PROGRAM USER'S MANUAL. ADDENDUM

A digital computer program was generated to evaluate the dynamic characteristics of the Tracked Levitated Research Vehicle. Additional programming and new input data requirements are described in this addendum that enable the reduction and plotting of vehicle test data stored on magnetic tape concurrently with simulated responses. The changes incorporate inproved theory and algorithmas and permit more comprehensive theoretical dynamic analyses to be performed. This manual is an addendum to the Tracked Air Cushion Research Vehicle - Dynamics Simulation Program User's Manual, Department of Transportation Report FRA-RT-73-19, October 1972, NTIS Accession No. PB 219 984/2.
