Alpha vane and configuration are the main trips for the stick shaker. For each configuration the plane could be in there is an assorciated trip vane angle that the stall warning computer uses to activate the stick shaker. On the newer stall warning computers, mach effect on CL is taken into account to help reduce the needed built in conservatism. There are several smaller issues having to do with stick shaker such as taking into account pitch rate effects on the vane angle but Alpha vane and the current plane configuration are the two biggies. -- ________Greg Wright____________ High Lift Development | firstname.lastname@example.org | 747/767 Aerodynamics | email@example.com | |____uunet!bcstec!gregory_______| NOT A BOEING SPOKESPERSON.
