Aircraft Engineering

The landing gear system of an aircraft absorbs energy from the impact of landing and is considered as the most critical component of any aircraft. It experiences very high stresses during greater impact speeds, which resulted in less factor of safety.

Our engineers use numerical simulation for the assessment of the landing gear dynamics as well as for aircraft structure and landing gear interaction. Analysis of structural safety for static and spectrum loads is carried out using ANSYS software. The normal structural behaviour of a simple landing gear structure model system is designed by our team of engineers which is further used to accurately simulate the energy absorbed by the gear system without adding substantial complexity with the model. The analysis includes structure aircraft weight at all required ground operations including landing, take off, taxiing and towing. The stress results obtained from the finite element analysis is further used to calculate the factor of safety.
