Abstract : MS), (*JET BOMBERS, FLIGHT CONTROL SYSTEMS), SPOILERS, AILERONS, ELEVATORS, ANGLE OF ATTACK, ADAPTIVE CONTROL SYSTEMS, MATHEMATICAL MODELS, COMPUTER PROGRAMSB-52E AIRCRAFT, B-52 AIRCRAFT, COMPUTERIZED SIMULATION, DESIGN CRITERIA, FEEDBACK CONTROLSignificant performance improvements are possible through application of advanced flight control technology. This technology has been referred to as Control Configured Vehicles (CCV) and includes flutter mode control, ride smoothing, relaxed static stability (RSS) and maneuver load control (MLC). This study investigated the compatibility of two of these concepts, RSS and MLC. The primary question to be answered was: do the two concepts operating simultaneously enhance or degrade each other and are the combined performance gains the sum of the gains of the individual concepts. Two classes of military aircraft, a bomber and a fighter were used as a basis to determine if the compatibility was configuration dependent. (Author Modified Abstract)
