Abstract : The aim of this Meeting was to examine the general principles followed in acquiring data on operational loads sustained by NATO aircraft, both fixed and rotary wing, in normal service and to compare current and developing loads data acquisition programmes. The techniques used and data obtained from work on a variety of aircraft types were reported; microprocessor-based systems were seen as providing the essential technology for major advances in this field. Although the main emphasis was on fatigue loads, the acquisition of design loads data was also discussed, together with the validity of current data bases for loads calculations on high-agility designs representative of the next generation of combat aircraft.
