This paper from Cedrat Technologies is devoted to the presentation of adaptive impact absorbers applied as aircraft landing gears. The presented work discusses a possibility of utilisation of active dampers based on piezo-actuators and magnetorheological fluids (MRF) as the actuator for the proposed system. Control issues of an impact absorption system are widely presented.

Analytical methodology remains the most important daily work tool of motor designers. The use of analytical tools is important because it reduces calculation time — especially during optimisation. However, there are some important phenomena that are not always evaluated, particularly when ECM (equivalent circuit models) are involved. For these, numerical methods derive the best results. The use of finite element analysis is very important because it provides detailed simulation and ...

According to bearing specialist igus, by switching to igus drylin linear bearings, design engineers will be able to see potential weight savings. By replacing a typical steel shaft and steel linear bearing with an igus RJMP bearing and hollow aluminium shaft, the company says that the weight reduction of the system can be as much as 85 per cent.
