This report attempts to analyze in detail the spin-up drag loads imposed upon an aircraft main landing gear. Other factors in the landing gear problem are ignored except insofar as they affect this one type of loading. As an instrument for study, one model of aircraft was chosen for which extensive flight test and drop test data were available.
