Dynamics and Energy Conversion of Aircraft Landing Gears at Touchdown
University of Sussex, United Kingdom
Dynamics of aircraft landing gears with and without pre-rotation has been analysed. The ground friction work is been formulated which raises the temperature of touch point to the rubber smoke point. The sliding time, distance, power and energy released by the friction at touch point have been presented. Simulation of target speed has been shown for different levels of pre-rotation torque.
