Landing Gear

  1. Sep 25, 2012 #1
    I have to do optimization of a landing gear of an aircraft but can not find anywhere sketches of the landing gear. Can anyone tell me where I can find these drawings? I must be detailed drawings to build the landing gear in Catia.

    It's doubtful that you're going to be able to get access to drawings of an aircraft's landing gear because they are proprietary information for the company that makes the aircraft. Your best bet will be pictures (with a few objects of known size) from which you can reverse-engineer the general design.
