If it sounds the same, perhaps you should consider what boat design.net a few years back and HBA today have in common. Hint: it involves a member who uses lots of double exclamation points.mr NoStealth you and your comments you just sound like "APEX" from boat design.net a few years back ! he was a one of them as well
The contrary. Tests like you describe are useless, just like anecdotal info from accidents. Outcomes could be shear luck, shear bad luck, but usually tell little if anything about the material/part in question.Figures and pages of laboratory tests done in perfectly controlled conditions are pretty pointless and have little meaning when it comes to dealing with mother nature !
To test only a few properties of a material and be sure of which properties you test there is not other ways than have controlled conditions. And make the test on multiple items at more than one instance. When it comes to complete prototypes, testing one may not be enough either. At lest three, and better closer to then does it most of the time I have learnt from mine trade.Figures and pages of laboratory tests done in perfectly controlled conditions are pretty pointless and have little meaning when it comes to dealing with mother nature !
