Welll the proper way to say for sure would be to set up a destrictive
test to see where it fails at and then consider about 50% of that the
everday limit. When I work in Flight Test for many years we did a lot
of "destructives and non destructive testive of parts to see where
they fails at and their warning signs of failure because they parts
would be loaded with strain gages to record the parts reaction to
stress. It was pretty interesting sometimes when you put theories and
designs to test to see they work as planned
For many years in R&D and I could tell you some stories that you would
likely never believe just like other things because you have trouble
accepting that someone knows something that you do not. Next time you
use a GPS (if you know how to) you can thank the test wing I worked
for because we did the flight tests for it in the very late 70's and
early 80's when it was under the project name of NavStar. The unit you
hold in your hand, that technology took up over half the cargo area of
a C141 during testing. I can still tell you how it works because its
theory has not changed to this day but you would not beleive that
either. I worked on a lot of cool test projects that are in use today
by military. Guess where the MIG that North Korean pilot defected with
in early 90's went. It went to a museum when they were done with it.
Yippie... None of this qualifies you to give automotive related advice.
Was that a put down? Man that was a lamest attempt at a put down I've
No thanks, we can Google it and find out how it ACTUALLY works.
What does a mig have to do with any of this or the fact that you
shouldnt be giving advice on automobiles? Man the things that you pull
out of your ass just to justify your worthless existence on the internet
Actually it does because I have a engineering background in electrical
and mechanical and even studied IC engine design theorys in college
and even wrote a few papers on it. (automotive has been a hobby for
nearly 40 yerars and I used to street rod when car were real cars and
engines were truely awesome) I can apply knowledge, theory and
experiance to real world applications because as a engineer you
understand how and why thing work and if they do not you find out why.
People that make comments such as your have trouble believing that
anyone can truely be knowledgable in so many areas because they are
not. The realy sad part is when they have a chance to learn something
they attack the source rather than learn something because you can
learn until the day you die unless you are too thick headed to do so
because you are already a "expert" on everything. Knowledge is free
you can waste it is you choose.
No...Actually it doesnt. And you prove that to us every day.
Well I can safely say my background exceeds that.
Notice he makes no claim in having a degree in any of the above. I done
some research and this is the most I got "I drove dump trucks in 70's as
summer jobs while going to college for engineering degree and they
were..." and "while pesuing a engineering degree..." Notice no claims of
actually getting a degree. Not that it matters. I know people with
engineering degrees and they know little if anything about cars.
Clearly your understanding of cars hasnt evolved ANY in nearly 40 years.
You mean when they were truely inefficient gas hogging coffins. Give me
airbags and a LS2 anyday. Oh by the way that engine is clearly way out
of your league in understanding.
Interesting. Nevertheless why don't you stick to that and leave auto and
truck repair to those who have done or continue to to it.
It would save you the embarassment of being constantly corrected and
Like R & D ever had to produce a viable product. <rolls eyes>
That's pretty much what we've been seeing from you.
Ego gone berserk.
I think the thanks should go to the people who engineered the
system down to where it doesn't need a cargo plane to move it.
And your theoretical knowledge about how GPS works has what to do
with anything related to the auto/truck groups where you post,
other than we now have vidiots staring at there GPS dashboard
screens instead of watching where the fuck they're going?
Test projects are a far cry from a working salable unit.
The dumpsters around here are full of test projects.
The auto repair industry is chock full of people who are good at
tests but can't fix a car for shit.
No doubt they handed it right over to you and Al Gore.
You have it wrong, guys like you make it happen because when someone
does know and you do not or cannot understand you attack them to make
up for your own insecurity. Knock yourself out.
