Shimmy is an oscillatory behavior that causes various accidents and malfunctions in the nose landing gear. This study has proposed a control method based on gamma stability due to damping the shimmy via the PIR (Proportional-Integral-Retarded) controller. Hence, we introduced various initial studies and results about the controller parameters. The simulations and performance analysis also assess the PIR approach. Lastly, the PIR form displays a thriving performance in shimmy damping.
