- TL;DR Summary
- I am working on a project where I am supposed to find some ways to get constraints on some of the components (rim, hub and spokes) to use these for parametrization.

I am working on a project where I am supposed to find some ways to get constraints on some of the components (rim, hub and spokes) to use these for parametrization. So far I have thought that the constraint for the rim is that it can't buckle from the pre tension of the spokes (here I am thinking about using tension formulas for a thin walled pipe) . The spokes are not allowed to buckle from a radial force (here I am thinking of using Eulers critcal load). For the rim I figure that I maybe can use some kind of torque constraint assuming that the wheel has a rim brake that will apply a force that will be levered as a moment from the spokes.

The problem is that I am not sure if these assumptions would be enough (or accurate either for that part). I do already see the problem of not taking the possibility of a lateral load in consideration so any suggestions of doing that are welcome. I would also be interested in how it is possible to calculate how much tension a spoke can lose before the rim buckles.

I am thankful for all help I can get
