A Java-based application that can read n-dimensional tables from various types of files and convert them to CSV, SAV or OTIS formats
Table Reader is a simple software solution that can assist you in reading multi-dimensional functional tables from several file formats. 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 four ASCII table file formats, FDA, CSV, NASA 2,3, or 4 argument, and two different FlightLab SAV file formats. In addition, it can read, but not write, C81 airfoil aerodynamics tables. 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.
- Improved OTIS table reader so that it maintains information about the degree of the curve fits in the tables between reading in and writing out an OTIS table file.
- Added information on the number of breakpoints in each dimension to the main window’s table list display.
- Added the ability to enter an “undefined value” that, if it occurs in the table, will not be plotted.
- Minor corrections to messages displayed.
