Wing loading

Postby grubb » Thu Mar 26, 2015 6:59 am


As some of you are aware I am researching the failure of VX770. I have now got to the point were I'm looking at what forces the wing was under in its final demise.

Can anyone point me to someone who can help me model what bending and torsion forces it have been under?

I know the leading edge carries considerable torsional forces (this is where it failed, probably due to nose-rib damage).

I'm not looking for a completely accurate model or calculations, an approximation will show some working.

Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to offer.
