Evaluation of Empennage Fatigue Loads for the Beech Super King Air Using a Flight Simulator 770464

Fatigue analysis of the Beech Super King Air empennage was performed in compliance with the Australian and British certification requirements. The empennage fatigue loads for this analysis were evaluated with the use of an engineering flight simulator. The empennage balance, maneuvering, and gust loads for both the horizontal and vertical tail were determined for various flight conditions. These loads were used for analytical prediction of safe life of the empennage structure.
