Title
Landing Area/Landing Gear Compatibility - A Brief History of SAE/Corps of Engineers Cooperation
Scope

This document discusses the work done by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Waterways Experiment Station (WES) in support of SAE A-5 Committee activity on Aerospace Landing Gear Systems. It is an example of how seemingly unrelated disciplines can be combined effectively for the eventual benefit of the overall aircraft systems, where that system includes the total airfield environment in which the aircraft must operate.

In summary, this AIR documents the history of aircraft flotation analysis as it involves WES and the SAE.
