High speed buffet is associated with shock wave formations at high Mach number speeds when local flow separation occurs behind the shock. 0 Interfere with the control of the aircraft To cause excessive fatigue to the crew To cause structure damage Aircraft must be shown in flight to be free from excessive vibration under any speed up to design dive speed of the aircraft. 7 CONTROLLABLE SURFACES Controllable surfaces are those moving components which make aircraft flyable in the air and they are: Control surfaces - ailerons, elevators, rudder Leading edge flaps andlor slats and their supports Trailing edge flaps and their supports The following flight load conditions should be reviewed: (a) Structural loads: Due to air loads in flight Consider stiffness and flutter Due to ground gust (b) Hinge loads: Due to air loads in flight.

In the two point landing case (2 pt. landing or LL2), vertical loads (V) and horizontal loads (D), are applied at the wheel axles. These loads are reacted by aircraft inertia loads, nW and T. The moments created by this combination of loads is placed in equilibrium by the pitching inertia of the aircraft. In the three point landing case (3 pt. landing or LL3), the main and nose gears contact the ground simultaneously. Two Point Landing: Three Point Landing: Fig. 1 Level Landing The aircraft must be good for the landing loads which are equivalent to those determined for the combinations of gross weight and sink speed.

With the landing gear fully extended and not in contact with the ground, a load factor of 20 must be applied to the unsprung weights of the gear. The load factor must act in the direction of Oleo movement. (B) GROUND HANDLING TAXIING: Taxiing conditions are investigated at the take-off weight and no wing lift is considered. Shock absorbers and tires are placed in their static position.
