Abstract : The Chemical Laser Analysis Program presented in this report is a computer program for the rapid, parametric evaluation of high energy, chemical laser systems including the combustion chemistry, laser devices gas dynamics, various diffuser-ejector pressure recovery subsystems, and system volume/mass estimates. The program does not calculate specific laser power but relies on experimental data for scaling information. The FORTRAN EXTENDED computer program listing, as well as detailed information on program development, organization, and operating procedure are given along with a complete program nomenclature and two sample cases.
