Design of Plastics Structural Parts for Static Loads



This chapter is concerned with the detailed procedure for the design of plastics parts to take static loads. In order to make the analysis significant to real problems, we will work with a situation that involves significant loads and important structural requirements. In order to generalize the approach we will work with a structural problem common to a number of different structures and which will show how the different structural requirements will affect the engineering choices to be made. The particular structural section that will illustrate the sample design problem will be a roof section which may be used for anything from a work shed, to a house, to a vehicle, or even to a simple lean-to weather shelter.
