    Round vs square

    hydro joe: For a 38.1 x 2.413 mm (1.5 x 0.095 inch) round tube, versus a 38.1 x 2.413 mm square tube, the moment of inertia of the square tube is 1.70 times the moment of inertia of the round tube. Therefore, in an orthogonal direction, the square tube elastic bending strength is 1.70 times the...

    Round vs square

    You would have avoided a lot of problems if you just aired down in that rollover video you posted. Anyway, I can't lie- the more I see of your rig the less I like it. However it's yours not mine. Also, get some 4 or 5-point harnesses in that thing, and stop hanging out the side! You're...

    It has a one link thats made of 2"5/16 trailer balls and 12" hydraulic powered rams at all corners that helps weight shift. The red part right under the springs is a swing arm. under normal driving condition the axle rests against the bottom of the swing arm bringing into play. The axle has the...

    Round vs square

    I don't think anybody was trying to beat you down. I would want to add some diagonal cross bracing behind the seats just to stop the roof crushing (imagine a box sliding sideways), you could also put some diagonals on the nearly square back side 'windows' Some diagonals on the lower panels...

    Well hell if you've already rolled it and the cage held up, I'd call that a successful test. You might consider adding some triangulation spars for some added stiffness in the event of a multiple rollover, but it seems to me you're already basically there. I attached a picture of what I mean...

    Round vs square

    hydro joe: You gave us the dimensions of a square tube cross section. But what round tube cross section do you want this compared to? You would need to state the specific round tube cross-sectional dimensions (outside diameter and wall thickness) for the comparison. And it would also be good...

    I been on sites that love to beat you down and its hard to get info. I'm looking for real answers not what people think. The rock crawling guys do not have any rule book that states what we should use. I've fond a tube buggy thats is accepted by rock crawlers. The f toy, the base modal is made...

    Round vs square

    HI, I have builded a tube buggy out of square 1"1/2 x.085 and was told that it was unsafe so I'm looking in to it. Was my design unsafe? My question is round stronger then square if so how much? Question 2 dose welding weaken the steel? Question 3 if round is stronger how much stronger is it...
