The multi-physics involve Mechanical, Thermal, Hydraulic, and Pneumatic based modeling and simulation of an oleo-pneumatic shock absorber with fault capabilities presented in this paper. The fault simulated in this model is leakage due to eccentricity. The one-dimensional shock absorber system models render loads at different sink velocities. These load values, used in the structural model to do static stress analysis. By using these loads directly from the system model eliminates the error in load computation from the loads group, thereby eliminating the time and cost involved in this activity. The models and static stress analyses are done with both 1-D and 3-D elements. The 3-D landing gear model meshed with using both auto and manual mesh generation options. The consequences of both 1-D, and 3-D models mesh generation are discussed in this paper. The static stress analysis, compared with the experimental results and it is found that the results are within 5% deviation. Based on the static stress analysis computed the life of a landing gear.
