Hüseyin BALTA [1] , Rahmi GÜÇLÜ [2]


In this work, an aircraft landing gear vibrations having passive suspension system, has been tried to reduce by a MR damper semi-active suspension system. MR damper being a semi-active component, has a nonlinear character and its damping force can be changed with the voltage applied to MR damper. For this purpose, the design of voltage sent to MR damper was done depending on the status of volt 2. The damping force is changed with the voltage  determined and vibrations can be reduced with the help of MR dampers. The result of simulation works showed that the voltage applied to the MR damper has an active role in reducing vibration.


Bu çalışmada, pasif süspansiyon sistemine sahip bir uçak iniş takımının titreşimleri MR damperli yarı-aktif süspansiyon sistemi yardımıyla azaltılmaya çalışılmaktadır. Yarı-aktif bir eleman olan MR damper nonlineer karaktere sahip olup, oluşturduğu sönüm kuvveti, MR dampere uygulanan gerilim ile değiştirilebilmektedir. Bu amaçla, MR damperlere gönderilen gerilimin 2 volttaki durumuna göre tasarımı yapılmıştır. Tasarlanan MR damperler yardımıyla gerilim belirlenerek sönüm kuvveti değiştirilmekte ve titreşimler azaltılabilmektedir. Benzetim çalışmaları sonucunda, tasarlanan MR damperlere uygulanan gerilimlerin titreşimlerin azaltılmasında etkin rol oynadığını göstermiştir.
