A safe, robust and reliable landing gear is among the most vital parts of an aircraft. Because, just as a bird, a plane could never survive without strong legs when settling down on the ground. The main purpose of a landing system is to reduce impact loads by absorbing and dissipating kinetic energy. It also must provide suspension as well as wheel steering and braking while the plane is taxiing on the tarmac.
Because the choice for a certain configuration greatly impacts many overall behavioral aspects of the entire aircraft, the landing gear needs to be developed along with the rest of the structure. And as the development shouldn’t delay the design of the overall aircraft, landing gear manufacturers are seeking Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) solutions that help them investigate as many alternatives as possible in the shortest possible time. And let's be clear, the landing gear architectural choices of today can have a major impact on the longevity of the aircraft it carries.
In this webinar, you will find out how a simulation-driven approach helps you get full engineering insight in the landing gear performance during landing, extension and retraction, braking and steering.
