Effects of Extremely Cold Temperature on Landing Gear Operation
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides information on landing gear operation in cold temperature environments. It covers all operational aspects during ground handling, takeoff, and landing. It includes effects on tires, brakes, shock struts, seals, and actuators.
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides information for landing gear operation in cold temperature environment. This information explains the effects of extremely cold temperature on landing gear performance and actuation. Cold temperature affects hydraulic fluid and pneumatic properties, which in turn affect shock strut and tire performance during landing and ground operations, as well as gear retraction and extension. This information is intended to aid the design process as well as operation and maintenance considerations.
