Abstract : This report utilizes a matrix format to conduct an analysis of the basic functions of the landing gear system. The interplays of components are identified and the contribution which each component makes in the completion of the function is defined. The analysis is further expanded into a detailed component analysis identifying the modes of failure and physical characteristics brought into play in the completion of each function. These observations are then collated and trends are noted. Potential improvements and needs are defind for future development methods. (Author)
