The undercarriage or landing gear in aviation is the structure that supports an aircraft on the ground and allows it to taxi, takeoff and land. A helicopter is an aircraft that can take off and land vertically also called a rotary aircraft, it can hover and rotate in the air and can move sideways and backwards while aloft. Here the type of landing gear is studied and the designing process is done through CATIA (Computer Aided Three Dimensional Interactive Application). The results from analyzing the stress strain state for the skid landing gear with regards for the physically and geometrically nonlinear scheme of deformation were compared.
