Catalogue excerpts

The Light Aircraft Design Computer Program Package - based on MS-Excel-application - was now extented with the new Sport Pilots (LSA) loads module, which includes compliance for the "Standard Specifiation for Design and Performance of a Light Sport Airplane - ASTM F 2245-04" loads section. Light Aircraft Design -    Loads and Static Tests -    Structure Calculations The Loads may be calculated according to the following regulations: •    UL Germany (LTF-UL) NEW***Sport Pilots (LSA)***NEW

Landing Gear Loads The design cases and corresponding forces on the main and nose gear are calculated. Engine Mount Loads Forces and moments in the engine mount CG (including gyroscopic effects are calculated). Control Surfaces/Flight Control Loads The total critical loads and hinge moments (aileron, elevator, rudder, flaps) on the control surface of the aircraft are calculated.

Wing Load Distributions (calculated and tested) The wing aerodynamic load distribution for critical design cases is calcualted with the well known Multhop lifting line method. The effect of flap/aileron is considered. The mass load distribution (structure, fuel, lumped masses like landing gear) due to vertical and roll acceleration is considered. The total shear (Tx,Ty,Tz ) and moment diagrams (bending-Mx, torsion - My and in plane bending –Mz) moments are calculated. The static test loading may be also defined and compared with the calcualted one.

Flight Controls Kinematics ( 49 EUR) This program calculates the forces in a 3D push-pull control system for different control system deflections. Cross sections of the rods are defined. The safety factors for buckling are calculated.

Manoeuvre and Gust Flight Simulation (99 EUR) Regulations (FAR/JAR/CS,VLA, LTF-UL) provide simplified formulas for gust. The resulted forces and load factors are normally conservative. A more detailed calculation may be performed by means of a flight simulation of the gust/manoeuvre in which the vertical translation and pitch rotation of the aircraft are considered. A differential equation system defines the A/C motion. By means of this method a time history of all A/C parameters (angle of incidence,

• Wing Sections (metal and composite) (49 EUR) A library of composite material layers is defined including all material properties. This library is used to define the layout of a wing cross section (type and no. of layers, layer direction). The section bending and torsion moment are defined. The bending and shear stresses are calculated. Finaly the safety factors for each layer is defines (Tsai criteria).

Calculation ( 99 EUR) This program simulates the landing of an elastic landing gear leaf (strut) by means of an iterative method. Large geometrical deformations are considered. The force-deformation diagram and the deflected form of the leaf are plotted. The form of the landing gear strut is defined: rectangular or round section. The safety factors for each cross sections are calculated (bending, torsion and total loading). Half struts or cross one piece) struts may be calculated. The tire elastic characteristic is considered.
