This report describes an analytical study to determine practical, passive means of minimizing airplane responses during ground operations. The major objective of the study is to develop a design approach that will provide desirable airplane response characteristics during ground operations and be independent of airplane size. To establish the generality of the approach, the study investigates airplanes which have significantly different sizes. The three airplanes chosen to provide data for the study are the KC-135, B-52 and F-4.
