This paper presents an approach to the design optimization of a conventional landing gear system for a supersonic transport, from a structural loads standpoint. Frequency analysis considerations are related to the computer simulated response of the nonlinear gear-airframe interacting system. Variations of gear stroke are made to examine the coupling between the gear and the airplane structural response. Results of the method are shown and implications for fatigue and service life predictions are illustrated by example.
