# STDATMO: Standard Atmosphere Function 1.0

Date Added: September 08, 2013  |  Visits: 334

A standard atmosphere function based on the 1976 Standard Atmosphere returns density, speed of sound, temperature, pressure, and viscosity for a given altitude input up to 86km.This function is designed to be useful for those designing and analyzing aircraft and has the following features that hitherto have not been combined in a single standard atmosphere function:d-deD?Input may be a scalar, vector, matrix, or n-dimensional array of altitudes. The function is vectorized and fast for computing atmospheric conditions at a large number of points simultaneously.d-deD?Temperature offset option for non-standard atmospheres, e.g analyzing hot day aircraft performance.d-deD?Input and output may independently be either SI or imperial units.d-deD?Returns everything needed to easily determine important parameters such as dynamic pressure, Mach number, Reynolds number, stagnation temperature, etc.d-deD?Option for geometric instead of geopotential altitude input, with other choice as optional output.Examples included in help:d-deD?Create tables of atmospheric properties up to 30000ft for a cold (-15degC), standard, and hot (+15degC) day with columns[h(ft) Z(ft) rho(slug/ft3) sigma a(ft/s) T(R) P(psf) dlTA(slug/ft-s) nu(ft2/s)]using 3-dimensional array inputs.d-deD?Find the SI dynamic pressure, Mach number, Reynolds number, and stagnation temperature of an aircraft flying at flight level FL500 (50000ft) with speed 250m/s and characteristic length of 2m.d-deD?Find atmospheric properties at every 100m of geometric height for an off-standard atmosphere with temperature offset varying +/- 25 degC sinusoidally with a period of 4km.
