Most of studies for the ground load and ground behavior of landing gear have been conducted with an assumption that the structure of landing gear was rigid body. The assumption of rigid body during design process results in many errors or discrepancy. High ground load occurs in 3 directions on the shock absorbing strut during landing. This ground load initiated high structural deformation. In this study, the flex-multi-body dynamics is applied to adapt flexible bodies, so the results of analysis can be described close to landing gears real behaviour.
