Loads on the Aircraft
10111021030700 Loads on the AircraftAircraft structures must be designed to withstand the static and dynamic loads experienced by an aircraft throughout its lifespan. Aircraft loads are those forces and moments, or loadings, applied to the airplane structural components (e.g., the wing, horizontal tail, and the fuselage) to establish the required strength level of the complete airplane. These loadings may be caused by air pressure (lift), inertia (mass, weight) forces, or ground reactions during takeoffs and landings. The determination of design loads involves a full aircraft analysis of the air pressure and inertia forces during certain prescribed maneuvers, either in the air or on the ground. The CFR 14 Par…
