ANALYTICAL WEIGHT ESTIMATION OF UNCONVENTIONAL LANDING GEAR DESIGNS
2015 (English)Report (Other academic)
Landing gear weight calculations can be carried out using statistical or analytical methods. Statistical methods were used in the past and offered quick group weights, however, they are not capable of computing with accuracy the weight of unconventional landing gears which have special geometries and performances. In this work, landing gear weight is computed using analytical methods. The procedure established by Kraus and Wille is acquired as a baseline so as to create a program able to deal with landing gear weight calculations. This software has been designed to be as much flexible as possible, giving the user the freedom to modify many options and parameters.
