The BASS code, a nonlinear high-order prefactored compact code is validated on a benchmark problem. The nonlinear response of a loaded airfoil to an impinging vertical gust is investigated in the parametric space of gust intensity and frequency. Computational resources, involving a Linux cluster, were set up and maintained. The code was corrected and adapted to this particular problem. Results are compared with linear solution from the GUST3D solver.
