Updated Part 23 Simplified Loads Sheets

March 5, 2017

While setting up a loads analysis for a part 23 aircraft we selected to use some parts of the simplified method from the part 23 appendix. In order to understand the context of the entire simplified loads-analysis we set up all of the methods for the aircraft loads, control surfaces, tab and flap loads in our standard spreadsheet form.

These methods generate the design speeds, the V-n diagrams. The spreadsheets also calculate the load per unit span and the moment per unit span around a reference axis for the aileron, elevator, rudder, tabs and flaps.

These methods are only applicable to simple, traditional aircraft configurations. Part 23 Appendix A should be read in its entirety to fully understand the context of these loads methods.

We have created a spreadsheet that contains the integrated method:

AA-SM-515-000 Loads – Simplified Part 23 Aircraft Loads – Complete.xlsx

and broken out the individual components into separate sheets:

AA-SM-515-001 Loads – Simplified Part 23 Aircraft Loads – Aircraft Loads.xlsx

AA-SM-515-002 Loads – Simplified Part 23 Aircraft Loads – Aileron Loads.xlsx

AA-SM-515-003 Loads – Simplified Part 23 Aircraft Loads – Elevator Loads.xlsx

AA-SM-515-004 Loads – Simplified Part 23 Aircraft Loads – Tab Loads.xlsx

AA-SM-515-005 Loads – Simplified Part 23 Aircraft Loads – Rudder Loads.xlsx

AA-SM-515-006 Loads – Simplified Part 23 Aircraft Loads – Flap Loads.xlsx

Hope you get some use out of the sheets – let us know what you think!

Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets

FREE ANALYSIS SPREADSHEETS 3 Over the last 10 years we have developed hundreds of spreadsheet tools to help us with our structural analysis work. We have made these available through the Abbott Aerospace web site and the XL Viking project. We have now brought them into the technical library. They have been updated, improved and the collection has been expanded to cover more analysis methods than ever before.

The XL-Viking Add-In for Excel

XL-Viking 2 We created the XL-Viking Excel add-in to satisfy our own need to make Excel a better engineering tool. XL-Viking shows your Excel Formula in a way that makes sense and brings essential new functionality to Microsoft Excel by providing an additional user interface and easy to use functions.

The Indispensable Tool For Engineers, Mathematicians, Scientists, Accountants and Teaching Professionals!


Technical Papers & Reports

This is our collection of public domain references. All of the material we make available has been placed in the public domain by the authors/owners. If you believe this is not the case and any of the library material is not in the public domain please let us know. If you have any reference material that you would like to see included in the library we would love to hear from you.

Market Analysis and Market Information

Our newest addition to the library is an on-going series of articles on the aircraft and aerospace market. These are part quantitative and part qualitative and introduce a new aspect to the competencies within Abbott Aerospace.
