I am currently finishing up a Masters in Aeronautics through Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Your program has been an amazing aid for me to model an STC change I made. Your program combined with a bit of statistical analysis has helped me understand and quantify a performance change in a manner which I think will help the reader visually understand my conclusions.
Your program provided detailed performance modeling which I am willing to expand upon further if so desired. The quick story is an Electroair EIS-41000 electronic ignition install which worked, but has a slight timing flaw which could be quantified by a mix of your Benchmark power available to power required curves and another digital engine model.
My installation of the EIS resulted in significant performance change; lost 2.5 kts @ 8500' and tied up at 12500'. The thesis is professional and emotionless.
Again, thank you for developing such a great program. It has also been fun to think about how some planned mods might go.
(This is the second MA thesis at ERAU that used Benchmark.)
