Gust-response analysis of an airplane including wing bending flexibility

John C. Houbolt, Eldon E. Kordes
Aug 1952

An analysis is made of the gust response (including bending moment) of an airplane having the degrees of freedom of vertical motion and wing bending flexibility and basic parameters are established. A convenient, but accurate, numerical solution of the response equations is developed which is very well suited for making trend studies.
