The Steel Joint Life of the Single-Wheeled Cycle Using FEM Analysis
The single-wheeled cycle is fashion and convenient, but there are some problems when used, especially the joint that connect to the lead bicycle. Due to the unavoidably collision when using, there will be the cause on joint parts with high stress state of frequent change, which makes the single-wheeled cycle under security problem. In order to get it fully, this paper use the FEM software to model the single-wheeled cycle. Under the different acceleration exert, the stress state of the joint and stress distribution are researched, then recommendations given about the potential safety hazard, joint life, and the suggestions for improvement.
