Two books from SAE International detail advancements in aircraft landing gear, as well as aircraft brakes and tires. Advances in Aircraft Landing Gear is a collection of 11 hand-picked technical papers focusing on the significant advancements that have occurred in this field concerning numeric modeling, electric actuation, and the use of composite materials. Advances in Aircraft Brakes and Tires focuses on the aircraft’s interface with the ground—through its wheels, tires, and brakes—a critical part of a safe and reliable operation. It presents a selection of the most relevant papers published by SAE International on these matters in the past 15 years. Both titles are edited by Robert Kyle Schmidt, a mechanical engineer and well-known expert in this subject. For more information, including free front and back matter, or to order the books, visit
