Abstract : The interpretation of cumulative frequency distributions of measured flight loads can be increased significantly by an additional extreme value analysis. This method not only leads to a higher reliability in fatigue design but may be used also for a prediction of extreme loading conditions and for a description of the effect of airplane and flight parameters on loads, as is demonstrated for c.g. vertical accelerations and gust velocities measured on airplanes of type C-130.
