EN The FEM model of the landing gear was developed to determine efforts of individual structural members while simulating the landing-gear drop, and to investigate how the energy of such a system changes; also, to find what kinds of deformations occur in individual components, and to investigate into the effectiveness of the damping system. In the developed numerical model of the landing gear account was taken also of the support-wheel-related subassembly, which includes such elements as: the wheel pin, the wheel rim, and the tyre. All parts of this subassembly, belt in the tyre excluded, were represented with the flexible hexagonal elements. results of numerical analyses for some selected drop tests and results from experiments carried out on a real landing gear confirm high quality of results gained from the dynamic simulation in the model of a complete landing-gear configuration. The advantage of the presented numerical method is applicability there of to landing gear testing for the very wide range of drop velocities, what is impossible to be performed with other methods, including experimental testing work. Paper show the geometric model of the main landing gear, a discrete model with the shock-absorber model included, the fringe of the landing gear deformation at the flnal stage of touchdown phase respectively from experimental and numerical tests and the maps ofmaximum principal stresses and how they change within the area of the welded joint that connects the upper and lower levers of the main landing gear.
