Your company has agreed to design, build, test and deliver a new retractable Main Landing Gear system for small amphibious airplanes. These types of main landing gears are expected to absorb impact loading during normal and/or emergency landings. For the specific customer, the MLG must be able to extend and retract, be of extreme low weight, and fold into a small compartment within the fuselage (planar movement perpendicular to the flight axis of the plane). Also, the mechanism should be self-locking, or have a locking mechanism (in both, the extended and retracted state). Small and amphibious airplanes are covered by ASTME f-2245, and qualify (FAA) as light sport aircraft if their gross takeoff weight is below 1,320 lbs. (600 kg). The current system and its MLG is shown in Figure 1 during a ASTME f-2245 drop test.

For a labeling of standard components, see Figure 2. Your company has selected you as the engineer responsible to compute, simulate, and design the requested MLG. For this, you will need to consider
The overall specification is given as follows (and are governed by ASTME f-2245), you need to accommodate the following technical requirements:
(H: 0.762 m, W: 0.3048 m, D: 0.3048 m).
