Shimmy vibration is one of the major concerns in the aircraft landing gear design. In this paper, the influence of structural parameters on the shimmy dynamics is analyzed based on a nonlinear dynamical model. A computationally efficient robust model predictive control law is formulated for a linear parameter varying system with guaranteed closed-loop stability. Moreover, an attempt is made to apply the proposed robust model predictive control strategy to suppress the shimmy during the taxiing and landing of an aircraft. Compared with two current robust model predictive controls, the proposed shimmy controller can effectively suppress the shimmy with more efficient computation. To verify the efficiency of the proposed algorithm, the simulation results are presented and discussed. Copyright © 2008 by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc.
