A lecture on 'Landing Gear Design & Integration into Aircraft' was held this week. We were pleased to host an excellent presentation by Adriano Argiolas (Landing Gear Dynamics and Performance Specialist from Airbus) on Wednesday 25th October 2017.

Adriano's lecture formed part of the series of Airbus Lunchtime Lectures given over the past 3 years, these are organised by Prof. Jonathan Cooper and Sarah Hassall, in the Department of Aerospace Engineering. Adriano gave an overview of how the landing gear design impacts the overall aircraft design, and what can happen in instances when things don’t go as planned!
