Landing Gear Fatigue Spectrum Development For Part 25 Aircraft
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides guidelines for the development of landing gear fatigue spectra for the purpose of designing and certification testing of Part 25 landing gear. Many of the recommendations herein are generalizations based on data obtained from a wide range of landing gears. The aircraft manufacturer or the landing gear supplier is encouraged to use data more specific to their particular undercarriage whenever possible.
Rationale: This document provides a means for deriving a spectrum of loads for assessing the life of a main and nose landing gear for Part 25 tricycle landing gear structural components. Many of the recommendations herein are generalizations based on data obtained from a wide range of landing gears.
