Load Factors and Stability

Load Factors and Stability THE major problems connected with the development of satisfactory structural strength requirements have long since been solved. We have, in this country, an empirical system of specification which fulfils the fundamental criterion of any strength system, namely, that failures in the air through lack of adequate strength of any component of an aircraft are extremely rare. An analysis of civil accidents Ref. 1 shows that about 6 per cent are due to this cause. This does not imply any reason for regarding even this small number with complacency, rather the reverse. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

THE major problems connected with the development of satisfactory structural strength requirements have long since been solved. We have, in this country, an empirical system of specification which fulfils the fundamental criterion of any strength system, namely, that failures in the air through lack of adequate strength of any component of an aircraft are extremely rare. An analysis of civil accidents Ref. 1 shows that about 6 per cent are due to this cause. This does not imply any reason for regarding even this small number with complacency, rather the reverse.
