The case of a Random Gaussian process for which the root,mean-square value is itself variable is considered. A distribution for the root-mean-square value is assumed and an expression is derived for the resulting distribution ...
For the analysis of gust loads on aircraft, a method is described in which the occurrence and magnitude of the loads are represented as random variables. The paper begins with the discrete gust, and goes on to treat the ...

Experiments were carried out in order to measure the effect of the tension waves which are induced in an arresting gear rope system after engagement, and to try out means of suppressing these waves with a view to application ...
The calculation of test factors is reviewed. The distribution, of the population from which the test sample is taken is assumed to be Gaussian. Three cases are discussed, in which (i) there is no prior knowledge of the ...
Estimates of atmospheric turbulence from counting accelerometer records show a large scatter. The simple assumption of a random distribution of gusts is inconsistent with this scatter. A formula which takes account of the ...
