Objective: The aim of Gust Load Alleviation techcniques assessment on wind tUnnel MOdel of advanced Regional aircraft (GLAMOUR) proposal is a technological optimisation and experimental validation through an aero-servo-elastic innovative WT model of gust load alleviation control systems for advanced Green Regional Aircraft.
The impact of flexibility on the gust load factor is also highlighted, comparing it with the quasi-static analysis by Pratt's formula, current standard for Part 23 aircraft.
A brief comparison of the gust load factor and wing loads obtained through a dynamic response analysis and through the application of a quasi-static methodology such as Pratt's formula, currently the standard for Part 23 air craft, is also presented.
CS-25 and FAR-25 specify the discrete gust load cases required for certification (CS 25.
The gust load factors and wing loads obtained applying Pratt's formula and performing a dynamic analysis in time-domain are now presented.
Once the gust load factor has been computed by Pratt's formula, to obtain the loads along the wingspan a rigid trim analysis at this specific load factor is performed.
In the past decades gust loads have been determined for long with quasi-static methods [18], which greatly simplify the complexity, and associated time, of the calculations involved.
A subsequent inquiry into the BOAC crash found the probable cause of the disaster was that "the aircraft suddenly encountered abnormally severe turbulence which imposed a gust load considerably in excess of the design limit.
He subsequently worked on the determination of aerodynamic gust loads on aircraft wings before opting for a change of career to offshore mechanics, where he devised and patented combined air/water flotation systems for enhancing the performance of floating offshore platforms.
This means that gust loads come relatively late when the design options have been narrowed.
Don't add maneuvering loads to the gust loads by horsing the controls around in immediate retaliation to each separate upset.
