Composite materials are used in aircraft structures because of weight and cost benefits. These components are mostly shell structures. For helicopters, weight savings are even more important than for fixed wing aircraft. Hence, components other than shell structures, which can be made of composite materials, are being considered. A project is described, focused on the development of the fabrication technology for selected composite landing gear components. The project is being carried out by a… CONTINUE READING
