Post by Dom »

Hello all. Don't come on here very often as I spend most of my time on the imp face book page (non official) so I thought I would share with you all what I've been up too. Only a few photos

It's coming together nicely, Dom! 8) All the signs are that it will be a worthy successor to your original Imp.

John Ross wrote: Its actually something you could only say works if tested to destruction but lets hope it never comes to that !
That's not really true, it can be reviewed with hand calcs to assess the stiffness and strength (primarily in bending), or alternatively with anyone of the vast array of CAE/FEA tools.
A simple, basic check with hand calcs would be to calculate the Second Moment of Area of both the original and the modified cross sections at that poin, and you would hope that the latter is roughly the same as, or greater than the former.
