Gas Turbine Engine Performance Presentation for Digital Computer Programs Using Fortran 77
This Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides a method for digital computer programs for gas turbine engine, steady-state or transient, performance to be written using the FORTRAN 77 Language. When it is agreed between the program User and Supplier that a particular program will be supplied in FORTRAN 77, it is recommended that this ARP be used in conjunction with AS681 for steady-state and transient programs. This ARP has two purposes: 1. to remove the requirement for HOLLERITH stores by replacing them with FORTRAN 77 CHARACTER stores; and 2. to take advantage of the FORTRAN 77 CHARACTER storage to extend the information interface between the calling program and the engine subroutine. The ARP has the same major section numbers as AS681 to facilitate its use with these documents. The information given in each section of this ARP is additional to that given in AS681.
