Abstract:

Data are presented showing the loads developed during actual landings of the A4D-2 airplane with external stores mounted on thewing, during un symmetrical landings and during landings in which the gear traversed an arresting cable. Results of a dynamic analysis are compared with the loads experienced during the external store landings only. The correlation of analysis and theory was not considered satisfactory insofar as the external store accelerations were concerned. Recommendations for improving and extending the analytical work are presented.
