Two-Wheeled Scooter Dynamics:
Strains and Load Reconstruction
In this study presented at the NAFEMS CAASE conference in 2018, Wolf Star Technologies True-Load software along with unit load FEA analysis was used to determine time history loads for in service operation with dynamic loading on a Razor™ scooter. Using traditional methodology, the test article would need to be substantially modified in order to use commercial load transducers which would ultimately change the mass and stiffness of the system and render the the scooter inoperable. The True-Load technique presented here required no changes to the underlying structure and only used simple uniaxial strain gauges.
