Simulation of A380 Landing Gear  by  Matthew Andrews, Emma Dorsey    
January, 2020 - Present
Dynamics of Machines class project. The goal is to develop a working CAD model in SolidWorks of the A380 landing gear system and a motion analysis of the system in three different modes. Also, a written report is written to showcase certain criteria such as: mobility of the system, vector loops of the system, and analytical solutions to position, velocity, and acceleration at each point.
