This course provides details of the design loads process used in certifying FAR Part 25 aircraft. The role of the Loads group in the engineering organization and its place in the design cycle are examined. The course starts with the relationship between the Federal Regulations and development of the design criteria. Basic loads processes and data requirements are introduced followed by static aeroelasticity and maneuvering loads. Dynamic loads and aeroelasticity are introduced including unsteady aerodynamics. This is followed by discrete and continuous turbulence gust loads. Miscellaneous loads from jammed controls, engine imbalance, interaction of the structure with active systems, pressurization and other types of miscellaneous loads are examined. An overview of repeated loads generation is presented next. Flutter analysis forms an extension to the dynamic aeroelasticity sections, and finally the course reviews some of the structural testing the Loads and Dynamics engineer will support, including limit load, fatigue, flutter and loads verification testing.
