Oscillation of Castoring Wheels

Oscillation of Castoring Wheels A PROBLEM which has attracted some attention since the advent of the tricycle undercarriage is that of the tendency to oscillate or shimmy sometimes shown by the nosewheel, which is normally free to rotate about the vertical or castoring axis, subject to the restraint imposed by frictional or hydraulic dampers. Various attempts have been made to predict the amount of damping required to prevent the buildingup of a dangerous wobble in the simplified investigation which follows it is believed that all the essential variables have been retained, and the basic character of the motion correctly reproduced. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

A PROBLEM which has attracted some attention since the advent of the tricycle undercarriage is that of the tendency to oscillate or shimmy sometimes shown by the nosewheel, which is normally free to rotate about the vertical or castoring axis, subject to the restraint imposed by frictional or hydraulic dampers. Various attempts have been made to predict the amount of damping required to prevent the buildingup of a dangerous wobble in the simplified investigation which follows it is believed that all the essential variables have been retained, and the basic character of the motion correctly reproduced.
