When generating distributed aerodynamic loads associated with a rigid fighter aircraft, to be used for loads analysis, CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and PSP (Pressure Sensitive Paint) are two methods available for industrial application. In this paper, the two methods are compared and discussed.
