Looking for some great information on compartment layouts for strut storage?
Storing struts on an apparatus is always a hot topic during vehicle design and construction. Mounting and storing struts vertically often requires a tall compartment. Struts with seals are best stored vertically. If struts are not used periodically for training or incidents and stored horizontally, flat spotting on the seals is possible.
