Abstract:

The report describes the composite F-102A maneuver loads program comprising instrumentation, data acquisition, processing and analysis of the maneuver loads data as experienced by F-102A airplane SN 57-70835 from April 1968 to April 1970. The primary objective of this program was to collect typical interceptor type maneuver loads data for the refinement of structural design criteria for interceptor type aircraft. The maneuver loads data were processed and analyzed on the IBM 7094 computer in accordance with six computer programs which were previously prepared and designed to apply maneuver loads data to the development of structural design criteria. Results of the analyses are presented herein in the form of curves, graphs, and envelopes to provide a basis for extending the state-of-the-art in structural design criteria for current and future flight vehicles.
