A400M Channel Fitting Optimization Topology Analysis Combined with Flexible Casting

Channel Fitting: Name of special shaped part (with a few attachment points)

Lock delay: Special load case where the main landing gear lock did not unlock the door while the actuator is already pushing to open the door

Extension Fatigue: Fully open door, kinematic is pushing on Channel Fitting stop (normal pressure)

Extension Ultimate: Fully open door, kinematic is pushing on Channel Fitting stop (increased system pressure)

Retraction Fatigue: Closed door, kinematic is pulling at the lock (normal pressure)

Retraction Ultimate: Closed door, kinematic is pulling at the lock (increased system pressure)

Hero process: Special casting manufacturing process

Casting factor: Factor specially for castings >= 1.0 (depending on requirements achieved)
