A method for the calculation of the lateral response of airplanes to random turbulence

John M. Eggleston, William H. Phillips
Feb 1958

In this method, the gust velocities are represented as rolling gusts, yawing gusts, and side gusts. Random distributions of gust velocities across the span are taken into account in defining the rolling and yawing gusts. Complex stability derivatives are used to account for the random distribution of side gusts along the fuselage and vertical tail and the lag effects in gust penetration. A sample calculation procedure is presented for obtaining the response of the airplane in each degree of freedom.
