The undercarriage or landing gear of an aircraft is the structure that supports an aircraft on the ground and allows it to taxi, takeoff and land. Among the various parts of landing gear, axle is the most critical component where the loads (landing and ground loads) act on the axle first, then transferred to the structure. In this study stress and fatigue analysis of the axle is performed to meet the strength and life requirements. The modeling of the axle is done using UniGraphics (UG… CONTINUE READING
