A Landing Gear Drop Dynamic Simulation Based on the LMS. Virtual. Lab
In order to evaluate the dynamic behavior of the buffer of the Seagull 300 aircraft’s main landing gear, a drop model is built to simulate the drop dynamics using the software of LMS Virtual Lab Motion. The fluid damping force of the buffer, the air spring force of the buffer, the tire force of the landing gear and the weight of the fuselage are considered in the model. The simulation results are compared with the results of the Seagull 300 landing gears drop test, which proves the accuracy of the simulation model. Then the buffer performance and its influence factors are computationally discussed. This method gives a new way to study and improve the performance of the buffer system of an aircraft.
