Advances in Aircraft Landing Gear is a collection of eleven hand-picked technical papers focusing on the significant advancements that have occurred in this field concerning numeric modeling, electric actuation, and composite materials.
Advances in Aircraft Brakes and Tires focuses on the aircraft’s interface with the ground – through its wheels, tires and brakes – a critical part of a safe and reliable operation. It presents a selection of the most relevant papers published by SAE International on these matters in the past fifteen years.
For those looking for more information on aircraft landing gears, brakes, and tires, the SAE A-5 committee (the Aerospace Landing Gear Systems Committee), which meets twice a year, serves as a useful forum for discussion on landing gear issues and development. A current listing of documents produced and maintained by the A-5 committee is included in the appendix.
