The surface pressure on a pitching delta wing aircraft is estimated from the normal force and the pitching moment characteristics. The pressure model is based on parametrising the surface pressure distribution on a simple delta wing. This model is useful as a tintapproximation ofthe load disb.ibution on the aircraft wing. Leeward surface pressure distributions computed by this method are presented.
