Increasing requirements for efficiency enhancements and reduction of emission lead to aircraft configurations with high aspect ratios, low structural weight and increased flexibility. These aircraft designs require a detailed load analysis as loads due to external disturbances like gusts have a strong impact on these aircraft configurations. The Institute of Flight Systems investigates technologies for load alleviation and has been working on the development of simulation and flight control design environments for flexible aircraft, the design of robust and modal control methods for the design and validation of gust load alleviation (including different sensor technologies, e.g. UV lidar sensors or fibre optic sensors), as well as the investigation of the interaction between different control functions.
