The report describes a computer program for the analysis of data derived by the five-component wind tunnel dynamometer described in ref 1.

The program is written in Interactive Basic; it incorporates the dynamometer five-component interaction matrix and correction formulae, and includes corrections for wind tunnel boundary effects. Output is in the form of coefficients of lift, drag and normal force and centre of pressure for varying angle of attack of rudder and/or skeg; the cases of rudder plus skeg, rudder alone and skeg alone are included in the output.

The program variables are defined and the program described. A program listing and examples of typical data input and program output are given.
