The structural analysis of Model XV-5A primary flight control systems is presented in this report. The primary flight control systems consist of conventional stick and rudder pedals mechanically connected to rudder, elevator, and to servo actuators, which control the ailerons, wing-fan exit louvers and nose-fan thrust modulator. The structural analysis is primarily intended to provide load information for the major components. The conventional flight control systems were satisfactorily tested in the airplane by applying limit load to the cockpit controls and reacting the load by locking the surfaces. The wing-fan louver and nose-fan modulator actuating mechanisms were satisfactorily proof tested on the simulator.
