Elephants are the largest terrestrial mammals living on the planet. The African elephant has enormous size and distinctive weight make them significant surviving species. The objective for this research project was to investigate, analyse and develop a landing gear mechanism using an elephant foot analogy. The project mainly focuses on reduction of asphalt deformation by reducing the simulated stresses. The final solution mimics elephant foot stress absorption carrying capacity, that can be modelled for the modified landing gears.
