I have a vehicle travelling at 180 ms^-1, weighing 2000kg.
I need to calculate the maximum stress that the wheel is likely to sustain if it hits a solid, immovable object at the above speed, so that i can successfully design a wheel which wont go beyond its yield strength.
Does anyone know of any formula to calculate the maximum force transmitted to the wheel
stress = force/area
The Attempt at a Solution
Im not really sure where to start with the maximum stress.
Any help much appreciated
