Simulation of Shock Absorber in Landing Gear

Application ID: 14045

This model simulates the dynamics of the shock absorber used in a landing gear mechanism of an aircraft.

It analyses the stresses, as well as the heat generated in the landing gear components due to the energy dissipated in the shock absorber. A prismatic joint, with spring and damper, is used to model the shock absorber assembly.

This model is included as an example in the following products:
