Abstract:

The study of atmospheric turbulence and its influence on aircraft operation and design has been of concern almost continuously since the inception of AGARD. The past few years have seen a heightened interest in the turbulence or gust problem, particularly on analysis or reduction of turbulent encounter data, and on design procedures. The present publication constitutes a review document in which is distilled the experience of specialists from amongst the aircraft manufacturing nations of NATO. It is aimed at those in design offices concerned with the problems of turbulences and resultant loads. This compendium is divided into two parts the first deals with data collection and analysis, the second with certification procedures and analysis of airplane response. Measurement of atmospheric turbulence Acquisition of statistical gust load data by commercial airplanes Improved reduction of gust loads data for gust intensity Certification Procedures and Requirements Gust design procedures Analysis by the statistical discrete gust method.
