The modeling of longitudinal bending stiffness of the strut to appropriately capture the landing gear longitudinal forces is a notable contribution in this article.
Double helix structures, such as DNA, are said to be well known in nature, and they have high bending stiffness. The polymer's supreme rigidity means that only a fraction of it would be needed to achieve comparable performance to conventional reinforcing fillers.
Bending stiffness did not differ significantly between specimen widths at the 5 percent level for the control group, although, like strength, 89 mm was the lowest (Fig.
Torsion and bending stiffness are most important for vehicle stiffness and NVH performance and were chosen as design constraints in this study (<1.5% reduction as limit).
The bending stiffness of the ESF-IM is likely related to the large intramedullary pin that is placed close to the neutral axis of the bone.
The combination of newly developed material compounds and product design decreases belt weight by an average of 15 percent and results in approximately 35 percent lower bending stiffness.
In this case, the arch is the once-statically unresolved structure, and therefore bending stiffness EI of the arch has an effect on its displacement and internal stress.
- Lighter (10kg, body-in-white), and more rigid (+24 percent torsional stiffness, +32 percent bending stiffness) Chassis
Major new engineering features and technologies for the 10th-generation Accord redesign are as follows: Body - 29 per cent ultra-high strength steel, the highest ever for a mass-produced Honda; ACE front body structure with crash stroke design; laser-brazed roof skin; rear crush zones with Softzone technology; first use of structural adhesives in Accord; first application of acoustic spray foam to Accord and lighter (10kg, body-in-white), and more rigid (+24 per cent torsional stiffness, +32 per cent bending stiffness).
Some frequencies such as sleeper passing frequency and frequencies induced by the rail bending stiffness are not able to be modelled.
Afterwards, the bending stiffness showed no difference between static and impact curves considering slope and peak load.
Substituting (1), (2), and (3) into (8) can be used to obtain the expressions of the bending stiffness coefficients, which are only related to the material constants and geometric factors, as shown in
