Landing Gear – Rational Spin-Up and Spring-Back Loads – Update

June 22, 2016


This is an update to a previous post here. During further background reading I came across this reference ARC-RM-2588 which gives a more detailed method for developing spin-up loads for aircraft landing gear. When I get time I will see if it is worth adding as an alternative spreadsheet method to the library and run some comparisons to the NACA method (NACA-TN-863).
