Abstract : This report contains two papers on the dynamic response of aircraft operating from damaged and repaired runways. In the first paper the response of a simplified representation of an aircraft to two discrete disturbances is analysed to see how the second disturbance modifies system behaviour caused by the first disturbance. The second paper provides a mathematical model which can be used for calculation of the dynamic response of aircraft structures operating on rough surfaces; a comparison is made between theoretical predictions for a YF16 aircraft and typical measurements from frequency response tests. Keywords: Military aircraft; Landing gear; Airframes; Aircraft landing; Undercarriage; Impact shock; West Germany translations.
