Aircraft Landing Gear Design: Principles and Practices (AIAA by Norman S. Currey

By Norman S. Currey

This is often the one e-book on hand this day that covers army and advertisement airplane touchdown equipment layout. it's a finished textual content that might lead scholars and engineers from the preliminary ideas of touchdown equipment layout via ultimate element layout. The booklet offers a necessary hyperlink in touchdown apparatus layout know-how from old practices to fashionable layout tendencies, and it considers the required airfield interface with touchdown apparatus layout. The textual content is subsidized up through calculations, standards, references, operating examples.

Tire Selection From the maximum main gear static load previously calculated, it is necessary to divide that load by the number of tires per strut to obtain the static single wheel load. Two problems have to be considered for the nose gear: the static and braking loads. These loads (previously calculated) are divided by the number of nose gear wheels to obtain the single-wheel static and braking loads. With these data, it is then possible to use the tire manufacturers' catalogs to select the tires.

The pilot merely pulls an emergency release lever that releases the uplocks and the trapped actuator fluid (if used), after which gravity and air drag pull the gear into a down-and-locked position. This capability should also be used on the main gear if possible. Having selected the appropriate support frame, the next step is to suspend the gear from it and to assume initially that the wheel center will be about 3 in.
