Frame

Updates

2/13 - Posted the Raine and Amor reference PDF. It states the forces they designed their vehicle to handle, which should help with our FEA. - JP
1/31 - Posted the newest frame dimension image, as well as a Standard Man CAD file I found. Also posted a Rollover Stability spreadsheet, which lets you plug in variables to get either critical speed or max turning radius. (See Frame_Stability.doc for an explanation of the cos term. Rich also touched on this when he gave his talk.) -JP
1/16 - Uploaded some 2D drawings I did for the whole vehicle based off of the Tadpoledim sketch. Also uploaded the actual AutoCAD file, if anyone wants to play around with it. -JP
