Abstract : A detailed aircraft landing gear model developed by the authors is presented. The advantages of this model are numerous. Its accuracy is sufficient for engineering analysis, yet it is applicable to real-time applications. The model is able to represent the complex ground reaction behavior required by such conditions as damaged runways, moving landing surfaces, high surface winds, and large asymmetric loads. The various subsystems are modeled in an intuitive manner, facilitating identification of any physical property by the user.
