An investigation of dynamic stresses in a landing gear at a pre-determined strut angle
Turner, Burr Van
MetadataShow full item record
This is a preliminary study of the dynamics conditions of a landing gear and covers a range from light to above average landings. The weight assumed is approximately two-fifths of the normal static load on a landing gear. In actual landings an airplane wing still has lift during its initial phase, therefore, these assumptions are reasonable. The experimental work covers the dropping range from two to five feet per second with varying tire pressure from twenty-four to forty pounds per square inch. These two parameters are the only conditions varied in this report.
