Verification of Landing Gear Design Strength
- Aerospace Standard
Published April 13, 2010 by SAE International in United States
Verification of landing gear design strength is accomplished by dynamic and static test programs. This is essentially a verification of the analytical procedures used to design the gear. An industry survey was recently conducted to determine just what analysis and testing are currently being applied to landing gear. Timing in relation to first flight of new aircraft was also questioned. Opinions were solicited from designers of the following categories and/or types of aircraft: a. military - large land based (bomber); b. mililtary - small land based (fighter); c. military - carrier based (Navy); d. military - helicopter (large); e. military - helicopter (small-attack); f. commercial - large (airliner); g. commercial - small (business); and h. USAF (WPAFB) - recommendations. It is the objective of this AIR to present a summary of these responses. It is hoped that this summary will be useful to designers as a guide and/or check list in establishing criteria for landing gear analysis and test.
AIR 1494 Verification of Landing Gear Design Strength will be cancelled as the contents of this document were included in the latest update of ARP1311C Landing Gear Structures and Mechanisms.

* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
