The body in static is going to suffer bending due to the weight of the components, passengers, fuel and cargo, Figure 42. Similar to a beam simple supported, the very first requirement is that the structure bend sufficient to absorb the energy due to the weight, but has to withstand the weight under different loading scenarios. Figure 42: Body loading under a static scenario and its corresponding Shear and Moment diagrams. Utilizing beam simple analysis the Shear and Moment diagrams can be obtained. These diagrams are dependent on the location of the center of gravity (CG) of the subsystems. Those locations are at the same time, dependent of the maximum loads allowed (Maximum passengers, cargo, etc.) and towing conditions. Additionally a dynamic safety factor of 2-g need to be multiplied with the loads to obtain the maximum load requirement. The combination of those severe scenarios creates different moment diagrams, the superposition of those diagrams results on an envelope of moments as shown in Figure 43. Figure 43: Envelope of moments (Malen, 2011,p.124) To understand this enveloped translated into the design a test at the body need to be performed. This test is called H-point bending test and consist of mounting a body into a ball and socket fixtures located in the FR and RR struts (Figure 44).
