The report shows the methods of analysis, calculated design loads, maneuvering time-histories, aeroelastic characteristics and a compilation of other pertinent characteristic loading data. The analyses extensively utilized XV-5A wind-tunnel model data and mechanized digital computer IBM 704 programs. From these studies, airframe strength requirements were developed. Progressive parametric evaluation of the airplanes inherent capabilities then served to corroborate the airframe structural integrity or, as for one particular maneuver, defined safe flight-envelope operating limits.
