In some problems of Aeronautics such as the analysis of pressure data obtained from the wind tunnel testing on wing models or the determination of tie boundary layer characteristics from a known pressure distribution on an aerofoil one encounters with the interpolation, differentiation and integration of a functvon (eg. pressure) given at unequal intervals. Techniques available in practice such as hand fairing, series of equivalent rectangles, least-square polynomial fits and cubic curve fits give crude results* This report presents a new method based on spline approximation which gives very accurate and reliable results compared with any of the methods available now. The method is programmed for the NAL sirius computer.
