Final Report - ADLAND (Adaptive Landing Gears for Improved Impact Absorption)

Project ID: 502793
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE

Abstract

This is the final report of the ADLAND project, which dealt with evaluating the options for adaptive shock absorbers to be applied in aircraft landing gears. Analytical design procedures were developed to simulate different potential design options and the best practical solution was determined. The different hardware components regarding adaptive shock absorbers were developed and tested with regard to an adaptive landing gear model.

The report begins with the project's objectives and a presentation of the participants. It describes the motivation of this research, based on the needs of the aviation of today. It analyses the tasks, the experiments and the innovations developed and finally, summarises the achievements and the findings of the project. There is also an assessment on the project's potential impact on the aeronautics and aviation industry and then there is a section referring to each participant's role in the project.
