The adoption of the distribution of the landing variables before their multivariate distribution would overestimate the probability that landing variables reach the maximum or minimum values, which may cause the errors of the global sensitivity analysis of the landing load. In this section, based on the requirements of the multivariate distribution, the equiprobable design envelopes of the landing variables are obtained.
This means that the wave load is dominant compared with the landing load in the hydroelastic analysis of VLFS.

An aircraft's service life is based on a combination of pressurization cycles, the aerodynamic loads experienced in flight, and landing loads. Each time an aircraft is flown, its fuselage and wings are subject to various stresses.
