A320 Torque link Damper

Sat Apr 18, 2020 8:03 am

Anyone having internal construction reference of the same? Also does it dampen out Vertical(like shock strut) or Lateral movements? Can't seem to find any literature in the training manuals.

The following provides a diagram of the 737 torque link shimmy damper. I suspect the A320 is similar.

As per the following;

shimmy is the "twisting" oscillation of the inner shock strut (and wheels) about the outer shock strut.

Thank you JetMech. The Boeing literature cleared my doubt and I can somewhat now visualize the construction.
