Approach to dynamic modeling of aircraft landing on moving ships
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents an application of the dynamic response and load calculations on a tricycle type landing gear of an aircraft. The formulation based on the Lagrange’s equations of motion treats the aircraft landing on a stationary deck in terms of pitching motion, roll motion, and vertical heaving motion. The landing is simulated as a single point, dual point, and three-point touch down with specified initial conditions. Effect of damping on ensuing motion is discussed. The results for a typical aircraft configuration are presented in the form of state variables and representative dynamic loads are shown in the form of graphs. In order to see the effect of motion of the deck, the equations are modified to include the deck movement into the formulation. Some preliminary results are presented in this case.
