This week we found only some digital pictures of the old landing gear. Our purpose was to find the structural drawing of any previous design. We are considering to apply Lineal Programing in order to minimize the weight of the structure. We would like for you to give us the web page address where we can find the design you mentioned at the meeting with Bryan G. here in Houston. According to the design we will use different material to build our testing landing gear. This material such as composite, and different alloys, have been used in our lab to find the strength and others important structural properties. We will appreciate if you help us to find as soon as possible any previous design. We will keep looking for it.

Next Week

The building of one leg of the landing gear and its study as a 3-D structure.
