Landing gear is the undercarriage of an aircraft or spacecraft, and is used in both takeoff and landing.. The landing gear shock absorber is an integral component of an aircraft’s landing gear. The role of the shock absorber is to absorb and dissipate energy upon impact, such that the forces imposed on the aircraft’s frame are tolerable. The shock absorber may be an independent element, or integrated with the landing gear strut. The aircraft may tend to land in a smooth manner or even in a rough manner. The landing gear components must be able to withstand the entire force. The objective of this project is to develop a landing gear which is suitable for rough landing too. The landing gear is modelled using solidworks and the modelled component is analyzed using Ansys to study its structural performance thereby replacing the material of the landing gear the same characters are studied in order to compare the result obtained by both the cases during the same landing conditions.
