Abstract : The paper gives a brief overview of work on atmospheric turbulence at DFVLR, and describes the research tools, which include instrumented aircraft and numerical models. Some results of research on turbulence characteristics are given; these are mostly in the convective boundary layer. The report discusses their application to the study of aircraft response and airframe loadings.
