Description of Functional Table Reader program at Mac Shareware:



Table Reader is a Java application that can read n-dimensional functional tables from a variety of file formats and convert between them.

Table Reader is a Java application that can read n-dimensional functional tables from a variety of file formats and convert between them. In addition, the program allows you to interactively do lookups into the tables and includes a simple plotting capability. The Table Reader program can currently read and write a number of ASCII table file formats, FDA, CSV, NASA 2,3, or 4 argument, OTIS tables, POST tables, and two different FlightLab SAV file formats. In addition, it can read, but not write, C81 airfoil aerodynamics tables and S/HABP print files. FDA stands for "Function Data Handling System ASCII". FDA is the most complete ASCII format that this program supports. It allows for any number of tables per file, with any number of dimensions per table, and it allows for both table level and file level comments (which are currently ignored by the table classes implemented in Table Reader). CSV stands for "Comma Separated Value". The CSV format is convenient for moving tables to and from Excel, but it requires that all the tables in the file have the exact same set of breakpoints and has only file level notes (not table level) that are contained in 4 lines of header at the start of the file. The NASA 2,3,or 4 argument table file is a name list format that only works with tables that have dimensions between 2 and 4. It does allow for table level notes, but not file level. The two supported ART (Advanced Rotorcraft Technology, Inc) FlightLab SAV file formats are the 2D airfoil high/low alpha aerodynamics and the fuselage 2D uniform increment aerodynamics tables. These are very specific formats that are used by ART's FlightLab simulation system and are not used elsewhere. Even the parameter names are hard-coded, so unless you use FlightLab, you aren't going to use these formats. Examples of these four table file formats can be found below. C81 airfoil aerodynamics tables are data tables used to provide airfoil aerodynamics data to the Bell C81 helicopter simulation system. Table Reader assumes that there are three tables per file and that they are (in order): sectional cl, cd, and cm. Each of these three tables can have a different set of Mach and angle of attack breakpoints. This program can read and write POST and POST II table files. POST and POST II are trajectory analysis programs developed by Lockheed-Martin and NASA.

Functional Table Reader is a free to try software. You can free download and try it for an evaluation period.
