    Control System For Tensile Testing Machine

    I confess I haven't done any research on any models thus far. I know MTI make tensile testing machines, but beyond that I am a little lost. I have had a look at general control text books (such as NISE - Control Systems Engineering), but nothing that relates directly to tensile testing machines...

    Control System For Tensile Testing Machine

    Hi, I am doing a small project on the "construction and control of a modern tensile testing machine" and am a bit unsure as to where to start on this! Does anyone have any ideas as to where I could find information on this subject, or know anything that might be helpful? Thanks, Chris

    Calculating Torque

    it is actually a 2WD car-it is using a motorbike engine to drive the rear wheels using the chain. Thank you for your help-it all seems so simple now...I wasn't sure if there were other conversions to do because of the change in direction on the force, but what you've said seems to make...

    Calculating Torque

    I am trying to calculate how much torque will be exerted on a half shaft on the rear axel of a car. I am a little confused as the power of the engine is put through a chain-drive and then turned by 90 degrees through the differential before it reaches the half shafts. Do you just assume the...
