Abstract:

The interaction of handling qualities, stability, control, and structural loads is a vital consideration in the design and development of aeronautical systems. Lack of sufficient recognition of this interaction has caused catastrophic results on some aircraft. Structural problems have arisen from both static stability and dynamic stability and control problems. Use of stability augmentation systems for solution of the interaction problems appears to be most satisfactory. New analysis techniques are now available that will permit integrated design of the airframe and its control system to optimize handling qualities and to take advantage of significant structural loads reductions.
