This paper investigates the gust load response of a large 750 passenger Blended Wing Body (BWB) airliner for identification of sizing cases for the aircraft structure. Considering manoeuvre load alleviation, gust loads become the dominant sizing factor for the BWB airplane. In order to allow for structural weight saving a Gust Load Alleviation System (GLAS) is designed and evaluated by numeric simulations.
