Flight Load Factors

Flight Load Factors THE values of the load factors used in designing an aeroplane are almost direct measures of its strength. They also affect the weight of a certain portion of the aeroplane structure. Although the percentage of gross weight that depends directly on the magnitude of the design load factors is not as large as might be supposed, it represents a considerable potential pay load on large aeroplanes and therefore warrants careful consideration of the basic question What is the minimum load factor consistent with safety http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing
