Re: paper: Feet Per Second / Misc Calculations

WooHoo! Nice and Simple, I like it. This will come in handy, I hate getting out my calculator or dealing with chunky spreadsheets everytime I need to make a few calculations.

thanks, Vivek

Re: paper: Feet Per Second / Misc Calculations

Updated Calculator:
-Added Quick Clicks for Motors, Reduction and Wheels

Added Gear Spacing Calculator
-Simply put in the pitch of 2 gears and it will put out 3 different types of fits

Any Comments and Improvements are appreciated.

Re: paper: Feet Per Second / Misc Calculations

Is anybody interested in writing a simplified version of this program for TI84 calculators?
That would be awesome to use.

thanks, Vivek

p.s. sorry I'm posting so much, Chris is using me as his guinea pig and I really find this thing useful. It cut my drivetrain design time from 5 min. to about 5 sec.

Re: paper: Feet Per Second / Misc Calculations

Hi Chris,
This looks like it could be a good resource for some quick calculations. I haven't had time to check your math, but it seems reasonable off the top of my head.

If there was one thing to criticize it is your presentation. There were some things you did which confused me a little bit. Maybe it is because I read into things too much due to my familiarity with this material. Some of your terminology is also a little confusing. Nothing that some massaging can't fix.

Overall good job! The best part about this sheet for me, is the lessons that YOU must have learned while creating it. It takes a certain familiarity with the math behind these concepts to create something like this. Kudos to you for taking the time, it will certainly serve you well in the future. I hope you continue to evolve & improve your sheets, because as we all know, design IS an iterative process.

Kudos!
-John

Re: paper: Feet Per Second / Misc Calculations

I second the calculator thing, but could anyone write it for the TI89's please??

Re: paper: Feet Per Second / Misc Calculations

Hi Chris-

Nice! This looks like a couple of good resources for people who are speccing out their drive systems. Your ~0.9 factor for what the actual speed of the CIM is a decent estimate for the general case, I think.

I think one of the great parts of this is your careful attention to what units are being used at each step of the process.

I agree with John's thought on making it as clear and understandeable as possible. You can never stop making it easier to use.

Not that these ideas would make it easier to use (probably the opposite ) but how about at the important parts of the calculation having a link which describes the calculation that is going on behind the scenes? Or how about a couple of plots showing the results that got generated (top speed versus gear ratio, for example). How about a pushing force calc?

Keep up the great work,
Ken

Thanks i am planning on making it a lot more user friendly and hopefully eventually make it have a nice interface.

I will put up a page on how i make these calculations so if i made a mistake you can check my math.

Im currently writing up some rough very rough calculations in excel to calculate acceleration, and how much pushing power you will have (with rough top and wedge top) and eventually make it into a web page.

Thanks

--Chris

Re: paper: Feet Per Second / Misc Calculations

Update

Added:
Get your Reduction for desired FPS

Put in:
-your Desired Feet Per Second
-your motor RPM
-your wheel size

and it will generate your reduction required to get your desired FPS
