Abstract:

Preliminary to a study by the Structures and Materials Panel on the flight of flexible aircraft in turbulence, the Panel heard the two papers included in this report. One of the two papers discusses measurements of time histories of turbulence made by specially equipped aircraft and turbulence event statistics obtained from aircraft in commercial operation. The other paper considers aspects of collection and analysis of flight data, methods of calculating aircraft response and constraints in operations.
