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.
