Designing Landing Gear for Durability

Presented by Jeff Mentley, HBM-nCode Aircraft landing gear consists of mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic assemblies which undergo a range of motion during flight that result in unique design challenges. As one of the most maintenance- intensive parts on an aircraft, significant considerations must be taken during the design process to ensure the reliability of the landing gear in order to minimize aircraft downtime. During this webinar the latest solutions in use by major Aerospace suppliers are presented. This webinar will examine topics such as:

  • Fatigue analysis using finite element simulations
  • Using material fatigue data such as MIL-HDBK-5
  • Aero spectrum loading for flight based duty cycles
  • Assessment of damage per maneuver
  • Virtual strain gauges for correlation to measured data
