Abstract

Structure and mechanism analysis often involves the use of advanced simulation programs, which are not always available to users. The Davies method has proven to be an efficient and easily applied tool in this type of analysis, allowing the obtaining of the stresses present in the links and the necessary torque to keep the device in optimal operative conditions. All these standards will set the foundations for the development and proper design of the mechanism. Taking into account the afore mentioned, this article describes in detail the use and applications of the Davies method for stress and kinematic analysis of a landing gear.
