What would be the Max load the MLG Trunnion link Shear pin would withstand prior to Shearing in the Above case.

Hi MEL,

I was not aware that the MLG Trunnion bolts were designed to shear. I have never heard them called anything but Trunnion bolts. And having pulled quite a few in my "C" check days, I can say that they are very beefy bolts. Not sure why you would want them to shear. Normally something designed to shear is done to prevent catastrophic damage. It seems in this case, you are going to cause it by shearing. JMO.

The B737 Classics have the Fwd Trunnion to the Drag strut of the Main Gear attached by a Shear pin/Shear bolt [Painted yellow].Also each Trunion Attachment end has shearing provision.
The purpose is on experiencing heavy load the same would shear to prevent further & more structurally critical damage to the Wing surface during an Accident.
Thats the reason when there is a major Incident or Accident involved on a B737 the MLG collapses.

You can estimate the load with a little information.

Lets just assume that the trunion (or shear pin if you want to calculate that) is hollow. So if you were to look at a cross section of the trunion, it would be 2 concentric circles. To find out how much shear strength the trunion would have at that one cross section, calculate the area between the two circles.

pi(r2^2 - r1^2) where R2 is the greater radius

Then take the shear strength of the material and multiply it by the area. Lets assume that the steel has a shear strength of 100 ksi and the area is 10 sq in. Then the shear strength is 1000 k lbs or 1000000 lbs. Just an example on how to calculate single shear loading. Impact loading is different, some else want to tackle that one?

How is it with other Models from the Shear pin Point of View.
