Development of a conceptual aircraft design system based on ACSYNT, an aircraft synthesis program
written by the NASA Ames Research Center; is discussed. The system, named
ACSYNT/VPI, was written using the PHIGS graphics standard for machine independence and
designed based on top·down principles and standards. A functional description of ACSYNT is
presented as well as detailed software requirements for ACSYNT/VPI. The software’s design is
covered in depth including design philosophies and software functional specifications. Program
output and design results are presented in conjunction with project recommendations. The appendices
include supporting design and development information.
