Abstract: Aircraft accidents rate may be falling as technology improves and maintenance practices are enhanced by the latest know-how in the industry but a fatal accident will still result in the loss of hundreds of life, especially when technology enables an aircraft to carry more passengers per flight than was possible half a century ago. When it comes to accidents that are a result of the forces of nature, namely sudden wind gusts, every bit of effort should be made to improve the resilience of the aircraft structure. This project aims to provide a preliminary study on the unsteady flow produced from a low-cost gust generator of simple design. The gust generator proved to be successful in producing unsteady flow and subsequently, experiments were conducted to analyse the unsteady flow.
