Stresses in thin cylinders: Theoretical vs Experimental

When cylinders are subjected to internal pressures stresses are developed. Three types of stresses generally develop which are:

  • Hoop or circumferential stress
  • Longitudinal stress
  • Radial stress…

Bicycle geometry explained

Head angle

  • High head angle has faster steering and requires less effort. Ex- Road bikes.
  • Low head angle has slower steering and requires more effort but these are more stable at high speeds.
