Abstract:

This mathematical model is designed to provide predicted dynamic performance data of shorebased rotary-hydraulic-type aircraft arresting gears. A Navy Model E-28 arresting gear is used for specific comparison between predicted results of the computer solution and actual test results. The simulation of an arrestment of a vehicle under a particular set of conditions is accomplished by putting information data into the computer. The input data specifies values for the installation geometry and mechanical properties of the arresting system and the test vehicle. Predicted dynamic values of forces and motions of the test vehicle, purchase system, and tape reel are printed out versus time at a predetermined incremental time. This report is a phase report on the development of the model and contains the early analytical design approaches, the most current analytical approach with the computer program, and instructions for execution of the computer program.
