This report presents a literature survey and review of the research concerned with the dynamics of aircraft-surface interaction. Of primary concern is the determination of surface roughness criteria based on how rough the surface can be without inducing structural damage in the aircraft. Attention is concentrated on analytical research in the form of computer simulation that deals with the aircraft response as a function of the input external excitation, vehicle model, and the output. Basic conclusions include the fact that no current computer code is satisfactory but that one could be formulated within the state-of-the-art to correlate with on-going actual aircraft tests. To facilitate correlation the roll, yaw, and lateral degrees of freedom should be included and a fatigue analysis for the test aircraft should be made. Author
