Hi Guys, I have a project to hand in before xmas. Basically I have to design a connector for a Wind turbine Blade. ie the Blade root, the one that connects to the hub. for this I have to come up with original ideas, so I cannot use another current of previous blade root connector. I have to come up with a few designs and work from their. so far I have the light bulb connector.( the one with the threads), but I don't want to use this as it some others are using it already.Here are a few things that I am trying to take into account with each design Interaction with other parts Tightness(play) Cohesion Slippage Dry Friction Shear Cost Any inputs is really appreciated, even if you think it is silly! I am trying to brainstorm. so every little helps thanks you.
