Impact Load/Accidental Limit State

Good day!

Can I ask if how do you consider the impact loads in FAST? Also, how can I use FAST for evaluating Accidental Limit state? is there a specific tool for this?

Thank you :slight_smile:

Dear Jerome,

What type of impact load are you referring to?

The Accidental Limit State (ALS) comes in many forms e.g., failure of the pitch actuator to follow the command from the pitch controller. FAST can model many of these types of fault conditions. What fault conditions do you have in mind to consider?

Best regards,
