GRAFFIT - A Curve-fitting Program for the CDC Interactive Graphics Terminal ( Book )
1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The purpose of this report is to describe GRAFFIT, a curve-fitting program. GRAFFIT is an implementation of the program CUVFIT (a curve-fitting program with plotting options, described in the Picatinny Arsenal Technical Memorandum 1854, December 1968), for the CDC 6500 Digital Computer and 1700 Interactive Graphic System (CDC Publication No. 44628800). The nine emperical curves available to the user are discussed and the program and its use are explained. Particular attention is paid to the preparation of the input cards and the various options available for manipulating the data on the graphics screen (Cathode Ray Tube). (Author)
PIPS - Properties of Irregular Parts System ( Book )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
PIPS is an Interactive Computer Graphics program for the calculation of the Properties of Irregular Parts Systems. This program uses the graphics terminal to determine the mass, weight, center of gravity, mass moments of inertia, products of inertia, principal axes and center of percussion of assemblies of irregularly shaped parts (not necessarily touching nor in the same plane) with respect to an arbitrarily selected 3-axis coordinate system. The solids may either be drawn at the graphics screen, or described and read in on punched cards, or generated by attaching (and modifying) an existing file of parts. The inputted solids may be accumulated with other solids and their combined properties calculated. PIPS was written for the CDC 6500/1700/274 facility operating under Scope 3.4.1, IGS Version 2, employing 30 overlays and 46K octal of 60 bit words of storage. The program will be rewritten for the Tektronix 40XX storage tube terminals
The Great Graphics Program - PDQ 3 (Partial Differential Equation Solution Graphics Version 3) ( Book )
1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
PDQ 3 is the latest interactive graphics solution to an important class of second order linear partial differential equations (Laplace and Poisson). These equations appear in almost every branch of applied mathematics; governing the solutions to design problems in heat transfer, elasticity, and potential (electric, magnetic, electrostatic, gravitation, velocity in irrotation flow, etc). Finite difference approximations are made of the derivatives, in either cartesian or cylindrical coordinates, employing a generalized irregular star for the 'computation stencil'. (Author)
PIPSTEK - Properties of Irregular Planar Solids (Tektronix) ( Book )
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
PIPSTEK is an Interactive Computer Graphics program for the calculation of the Properties of Irregular Planar Solids. This program utilizes the graphics terminal to determine the mass, weight, center of gravity, mass moments of inertia, products of inertia, principal axes and center of percussion of assemblies of irregularly shaped parts (not necessarily touching nor in the same plane) with respect to an arbitarily selected 3-axis coordinate system. The solids may either be described and read in on punched cards, or drawn at the graphics screen, or generated by attaching (and modifying) an existing file of parts. The inputted solids may be accumulated with other solids and their combined properties calculated. PIPSTEK was written for the CDC 6500/TEK 4014 facility operating under Scope 3.4.2 employing 15 overlays and 56K octal of 60 bit words of storage. (Author)
SOS - Statics of Solids - A Program to Calculate Weight, Center of Gravity, and Inertias of Asymmetrical Missiles ( Book )
1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The report formulates a computer program designed to calculate the weight, center of gravity, moments of inertia, products of inertia, principal inertias, and the direction cosine matrix of the principal axes for an asymmetrical system of bodies consisting of the following geometrical shapes; ogives, cylinders, cone frustums, rectangular parallelepipeds, surfaces of revolution, and bodies of known properties.

GRAFTEK - GRAFFIT Curve Fitting Program TEKtronix Version ( Book )
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
GRAFTEK is an interactive graphics program that fits by least squares, a curve to N data points. This code combines two CDC 274 graphics curve fitting programs (GRAFFIT, LSQ) for use on the TEKtronix 4014 storage tube using Tektronix software (TCS). The program fits the curve and determines the constants for any of nine empirical equations or a polynomial of up to 11th degree, and displays the fitted curve (up to three at one time) against a background of the data points. Options include reading in new data, rescale of axes, deleting all displayed curves, deleting points, adding new points, restoring all original or selected deleted points, specifying constants, and calling for CALCOMP plotter or quick look hard copy of output.

PROMS (PROjectile Measurement Systems Program) ( Book )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
PROMS is an interactive graphics projectile measurements and engineering design generation program developed for use with the Control Data Corporation 6500/1700/274 Digigraphic System. PROMS effectively enables the user to perform ballistic matching and projectile parametic studies on new munition items. The designer can quickly and easily change, add, delete and move components of the projectile as needed and view the calculated results immediately on the CRT screen. These results include the weight, center of gravity, transverse and polar moments of inertia and displaced volume of the projectile and are displayed along with the assembly drawing of the new design. Projectile data can be viewed and repeatably modified using a light pen and alphanumeric keyboard in a continuous man-machine interactive design loop
Common Interactive Graphics Application Routines (CIGAR) ( Book )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
With the introduction of interactive graphics into the computing community, bits and pieces of different graphical techniques and capabilities were initially developed to solve different problems on different machines in different languages. The collection and combination of these techniques into one package became a recognized necessity. This was the primary aim of CIGAR - a package of Common Interactive Graphics Application Routines. This package presently enables: the 'drawing' of lines, arcs, and curves; translate, rotate, duplicate, mirror, and erase operations; scale changing, calculation of dimensions, and storage and recall from a data base. CIGAR presently operates on the CDC 6500/1700/274 Digigraphics system at Picatinny Arsenal under SCOPE 3.4.1, IGS V.2, employing 16 overlays and 53.3 K bytes of storage
Computergraphics Language for Your Design Equations (CLYDE) ( Book )
1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
CLYDE is a computer graphics language for your design equations. It is the aftermath of the PDQ series, providing an interactive graphics solution to an important group of second and fourth order partial differential equations. These equations appear in almost every branch of applied mathematics: governing the solutions to design problems in heat transfer, stress analysis, and potential fields (electric, magnetic, electrostatic, gravitation, velocity in irrotational flow, etc ...). This document is intended as a press release - to pictorially reveal the diverse engineering applications available. CLYDE was written for a CDC 6500/1700/274 facility operating under SCOPE 3.3, IGS V.2 employing 32 overlays and 50K bytes of storage. (Author)
