von Karman Continuous Gust PSD

FAA Federal Aviation Regulations FAR-25 Appendix G, Continuous Gust Design Criteria, requires a continuous turbulent gust analysis for transport aircraft.

The gust PSD function is given in: The von Karman Vertical Gust Spectrum

A Matlab script for generating a continuous gust velocity PSD is given in: Vibrationdata Signal Analysis Package under the Wind & Waves option.

The script has options for both the Dryden and von Karman gust PSDs. The script can also synthesize a time history for the velocity PSD.
