This simulation plan aims to explain and document all steps to be taken in the simulation analysis of the Fokker-100 case. This case is the scenario in which the aircraft touches the ground during landing, introducing loads on the landing gear. The landing gear consists of 2 rear gears around mid-span and one in the front. Furthermore, the pilot uses the rudder which induces a lateral force on the tail.
As stated in the assignment, it is required to find the maximum normal stress and location of this in the fuselage, the maximum shear stress and its location in the fuselage, and the maximum shear flow in the frames that introduce the loads from the landing gears into the fuselage.
