6. Truncated Right Angle Cone. Code: TRC

      A TRC can have any orientation in space.
      It is bounded by a conical surface and by two circular plane faces
      perpendicular to the axis of the cone.
      Each TRC is defined by 8 numbers:
      V_x, V_y, V_z, (coordinates of the centre of the major circular
      base), H_x, H_y, H_z (components of a vector corresponding to the
      TRC height, directed from the major to the minor base), R1 (radius
      of the major base), R2 (radius of the minor base)
      A TRC definition extends over 2 cards in default fixed format, or over
      3 cards in high-accuracy body fixed format.

      Example in default fixed format:
*...+....1....+....2....+....3....+....4....+....5....+....6....+....7..
TRC 102 0.0 0.0 -130.0 0.0 0.0 1000.0 600. 150.0
* (a truncated cone 1000 cm long parallel to the z axis, with the
* larger circular base 600 cm in radius located at z = -130 and the
* smaller base 150 cm in radius located at z = 870)
The same example in high-accuracy body fixed format:
*...+....1....+....2....+....3....+....4....+....5....+....6....+....7....+.
