Weight reduction is a typical design goal for modern aircraft. If gust encounters (as required by Certification Specification 25) are sizing conditions of parts of the airframe, this can be achieved (for example) by an active gust load alleviation system that reduces the gust load level down to the level of the next design condition, which might be the(More)
Gust load alleviation control refers to the task of attenuating loads acting on an aircraft flying through turbulence. Simulation studies have shown that model predictive control based gust load alleviation strategies can lead to significant load reduction. Application of control strategies in airplanes requires guarantees with respect to reliability,(More)
