"An analog computer simulation was performed on the Systron Donner SD 40/80 electronic differential analyzer consisting of one panel (SD 40) less three modules augmented by three digital logic modules for iterative operation. The flapping equation was solved in continuous iteration for various values of blade mass and the resultant blade flapping magnitudes and harmonic coefficients were compared in computer plots of the blade tip path plane. A flap compensator was added and the result plotted. Various aerodynamic parameters of the flapping equation solution were plotted"--Abstract, page ii.
