Abstract : From structural flight loads measurements on three OH-6A helicopters, 216 hours of usable multichannel flight data were recorded as the helicopters operated from bases in Southeast Asia. Data were processed and analyzed according to four flight phases, called mission segments: ascent, maneuver, descent, and steady state. Data are presented in the form of time and occurrence tables, histograms, and exceedance curves.
