The Brompton Handlebar Case II

While browsing the Internet I found some past references to Brompton Handlebar cracks near the bending elbows. I noticed my colleague Brompton had a different design and thus concluded that probably the Brompton bike team, decided to turn the  handlebar more robust.

I notice that I make some force to the ground direction when pedalling and curving, special when the road has bumps.

In wich elbow will the stress higher and the cracks be formed? I will be continuing on this subject, so please stay tuned.

Salome-Meca 2017 Is out

It looks like finally the CodeAster powered version of Salome is out… Hopefully   it will introduce the much awaited improved GUI additions with support for adding constraints, loads, … everything needed for the simulation model. Salome-Meca 2016 failed in this field.
