The Landing Gear of the Lockheed SST 650224

The landing gear of the Lockheed Model L-2000 supersonic transport is described as a vital element of the overall configuration of the airplane, considering the sometimes conflicting demands for safety, simplicity, long service life, small frontal area, and low pavement loading. The choice of six wheels for each main gear is explained, as is the selection of titanium alloy and high heat-treat steel as the principal structural materials. The nose gear steering system and the wheel well cooling systems are described, together with criteria for tires, wheels, and brakes.
