Abstract : The report is divided into 11 sections including Weight Data, Aerodynamic Data, Airload Distributions, Basic Flight, etc. The Basic Flight section combines the pertinent parameters in the most critical combination within the structural design envelope. The sections following then distribute the loads for the critical conditions, as determined in the Basic Flight section, to the appropriate vehicle components. Considerable effort and detail are believed desirable in order to assure load compatibility for a given condition. However, for cases of specific local design where the amount of time required to calculate a complete compatible condition is unwarranted, overlapping assumptions are made in a conservative manner.
