A simulation model for an oleo-pneumatic shock absorber of a combat aircraft is presented. System equations are presented incorporating the effects of friction, gas spring and damping. The model is validated with experimental data. The objective is to use the model as a tool to improve the shock absorber condition monitoring and fault detection methods. As a part of that a new measuring instrument is discussed.
