Abstract

Landing and take-off from the surface of the ground is of paramount importance for any aircraft, there is very less room for error. As there is risk of valuable property and life, thus a general aviation aircraft is facilitated by the landing gear mechanism. The design of the landing gear is one of the most necessary and nonnegotiable aspects in terms of aircraft design. Hence main landing gear is considered in the present study. This current paper involves the design of the landing gear for subsonic (>1235 kmph) transport aircraft whose take-off mass is approx. 73.5 tones.
