Abstract : The magnitude and frequency of occurrence of maneuver accelerations experienced by five types of commercial transport airplanes during routine operations have been obtained from time-history (VGH) records and are presented herein. The results are compared with available gust acceleration data for the operations considered. It is indicated that maneuver accelerations may contribute substantially to the total load histories of transport airplanes, particularly in the case of medium altitude operations.
