While only used for a fraction of time during flight, an airplane’s landing gear often endures the harshest treatment of any equipment on board. The wheels not only support the full weight of a plane’s payload, but they must also be equipped to handle sudden contact with the runway during touchdown, as well as aggressive stops at high speeds. Coupled together, these factors expose the wheels to high heat and stress that wears them out over time. As such, extensive engineering has been put into determining how many wheels are adequate to effectively support the aircraft while reducing its overall weight. You may ask yourself, “How do manufacturers determine the number of wheels an aircraft needs? This article will answer this question by providing a short guide for understanding landing gear wheels.

While most of an aircraft is already sealed off from weather phenomena by nature of being a fully enclosed space, if you look closely, you may spot several rain gutters. Rather than keeping water from pooling anywhere on the vessel, these gutters are mainly used to direct water away from doors and other access points. Unlike other rain gutters, those on aircraft are much smaller and thinner so that they will not interfere with the aerodynamics of the vessel. Nevertheless, these thin gutters are effective at guiding rainwater away from entrances.

Retaining rings are ring-shaped fasteners that are designed to fit onto shafts or bores to help keep machinery parts in place. Typically consisting of a small metal ring, these fasteners are some of the most common devices you will find in industrial machinery, vehicle construction, and more. Consequently, to suit a myriad of applications, they come in several different materials, sizes, and styles. With so many variations to choose from, here is a helpful set of tips you may reference to help find the best retaining rings for your assembly.
