An overview of the technical work performed as part of the EC FP7 Marie Curie European Industrial Doctorate Training Network ALPES (Aircraft Loads Prediction using Enhanced Simulations) is given. A review of the industrially focused studies in the areas of: improved modelling for combined high load events, Reduced Order Modelling approaches, efficient and accurate gust loads modelling, worst case predictions and uncertainty quantification of gust, manoeuvre and landing loads is described. A number of technical advances suitable for application to industrial scale problems have been made.
