Wheel design minutes
« on: December 13, 2011, 06:18:05 PM »
Hello friends.

We still do not have minutes from our group work.
I know we all have lot of work at our schools but we should finish this ASAP.
Not sure who is representative of our group, but if this can help him or her to make minutes I will post
here few things I have in my notes.

Base for making official minutes for wheel design group:

Brainstorming: students had many interesting ideas.
With little help of teachers group decided few "rules".

1.   Dimension of the weels should remain same as on train1 .

2.   Wheels should have bearings to allow each wheel to turn in different
       speed to avoid wagon jump out of tracks in the curves.

3.   Esthetic design of the wheels should be done by each country. When
      deciding about esthetic design we should be carefull so bearings can
      fit in the wheel, and structure of the wheel should be tested for stress.

4   Materials : -aluminium or nylon or brass for WAGONS
                         -cast iron for LOCOMOTIVE


I hope this will help us to make minutes as soon as possible and send it to Heinz.
