Abstract:

A statistical analysis of horizontal-tail loads was made from measurements obtained on a fighter airplane during operational training. The flights covered altitudes up to about 50,000 feet and Mach numbers up to 1.22. The analysis was performed to determine the feasibility of calculating horizontal-tail load from data on the flight conditions and airplane motions. Loads were calculated by two methods, a direct approach and a Monte carlo technique, and were compared with the measured loads for each type of mission performed during the flight investigation.
