Attie Jonker, JS Chief Engineer, explains:
The kinematic linkages and structures for both the
landing gear and the flight controls were designed
via more traditional calculation methods.
Spreadsheets and solvers were used to determine the
optimum linkage motion and then iterated with CAD
solid modeling to fine tune the systems.
calculations were performed by traditional stress
A CAD model of the landing gear
and control system linkages is shown below
