NPL Bicycle Frame Design Project
This exercise shows the tricky business of compromise that all engineers face. In designing a bicycle frame, choice of materials can affect different properties of the bike in different ways. The task of finding the right material for the job can be awkward - are you after a cheap frame, or are you building a racing frame, with money no object? This suite of applets allows you to experiment with different tube cross-sections.
