  • Ropeways (aka: aerial tramways) - Open Source Ecology Forums
    is used in factory buildings but outdoors and larger Now can you take that idea and make the whole system portable so if circumstances change you can move it around add new sections etc And still keep a useful load And then how does it compare to building roads for construction projects Vote Up 0 Vote Down Matt Maier January 2012 Permalink I guess what I meant was how does the cost of ownership compare If anything goes wrong with a surface road then at worst you stop moving If anything goes wrong with THAT road you re going to have a nasty fall If a vehicle blocks a surface road you just go around it or push it out of the way If a vehicle blocks that wire road you d better get it moving because you re not getting a tow truck out to it If you want to get out of a vehicle on a surface road you just you know get out If you want to get out of a vehicle suspended in the air you just you know don t get out Also it doesn t look like the sort of thing I d be willing to drive on during high winds So while it might be cheaper to build than a surface road it seems intuitively that it would be far more expensive to use over the long term Maybe not expensive to the guy who built it but expensive to the guys who use it Although maybe you could use it for bootstrapping Build the wire road along the path you want to build a surface road then people could use it if they wanted Based on how popular it is you could decide whether or not to build the surface road If you decide to build the surface road you can put one or more cranes on the wire road and drive materials trucks out to them That way you can build the surface road out of modular stilts or simply build it normally but faster because you already have a road next to the construction site Then you could move the wire road to a different place Rinse and repeat Vote Up 0 Vote Down danielravennest January 2012 Permalink Oh the truck driving over the top of the wires is completely scary I was thinking more in terms of a hanging gondola propelled by a wheeled bogey clamped onto a rail in such a way it can t fall off The rail is supported by a suspension arch so it doesn t sag and can span longer distances That takes care of the longer distance axial transport the road replacement At a construction site you have a shorter span running crosswise between two rails with a hoist that can run along that span That s the same as how bridge cranes work in industrial buildings except this would be outdoors and temporary The idea is to not have to chop down

    2 years and been very active in the project s discussion forums I feel your comments and assessments of FreeCAD have not been fair to the software and betray a lack of knowledge about it Bluntly most of what you ve said about it is just plain wrong If you had posted about your troubles in the FreeCAD forum we would have helped you overcome them In any case you ve painted FreeCAD in a bad light and I m disappointed I couldn t bring my arguments into the FreeCAD discussion BTW the last v0 12 has greatly improved you re welcome to have a new try at it and if you do please come talk to us Thanks March 2012 dhtractormfgr Matt Maier Hello Matt We have found a fabricator who is willing to order parts very cheaply for us We are meeting with them next week and I am interested to know how the parts list for the lifetrac III differs from that for the lifetrac II In other words if we order the currently available BOM s for the powercube and tractor will what we build soon be antiquated Thank you very much Hayden February 2012 Howdy Stranger It looks like you re new here If you want to get involved click one of these buttons Sign In Apply for Membership About Username Matt Maier Joined December 2011 Visits 0 Last Active March 2013 Roles Member Loading Open Source Ecology Forums Discussions All Categories General Discussion 357 Introductions 145 GVCS Development 43 GVCS Replication 14 Similar Projects Partnerships and Open Culture 53 In the News 14 Education 15 Food 18 Energy 42 Health 2 Sustainable Architecture 21 Transportation 10 Household 6 IT Web Infrastructure 110 Shared Personal Notes 1 New Communities 10 Other Languages 3 Discussões em

  • Ewing Monorail System: Old-Tech, Rail made Easy - Open Source Ecology Forums
    areas Since the space need to lay the tracks was less and balancing wheel could run on existing roads PSMT succeeded in running through the congested urban areas of Patiala The balancing wheel of PSMT ran on the roads and did not interfere with normal traffic The major benefit of trains is that they run on steel tracks Steel rail can carry more load with less rolling friction than any other mode of ground transport However the major problem with laying steel tracks is that both rails have to rise and fall and bank together Further laying two tracks also requires more space and more maintenance Also the turning radius of the train is restricted by the difference in length or distance traveled between the inside and outside rails is a factor in curve resistance Curve resistance means that the wheels on the inside rail travel a shorter distance than the wheels on the outside rail to get the vehicle around a curve The trains can only turn to the limit where its outer wheels can cope with additional required speed In case the outer wheels fail to maintain or reach the required speed the train may derail W J Ewing implemented a monorail system with only one rail and double flanged rail wheels that had been proposed by William Thorold in a lecture to the British Association in 1868 This system avoided all those problems since it was laid out along the side of a road it took up very little land Further the road or balance wheel s main purpose was balance the train and to keep it upright The balancing wheel on the road carried only 4 or 5 of the load it did not subtract much from the steel wheel steel rail efficiency As the track was on side of the road it was no obstacle to vehicles crossing it Further since it was a monorail with a supporting wheel on the ground the issue of curve resistance did not arise in Ewing System since the wheels were placed on a single track only 1 Comment sorted by Votes Date Added Vote Up 0 Vote Down Matt Maier January 2012 Permalink Cool An outrigger system for trains What s the drawback There must be a reason no one uses that design Add a Comment Howdy Stranger It looks like you re new here If you want to get involved click one of these buttons Sign In Apply for Membership Categories All Discussions 1 013 General Discussion 895 Introductions 145 GVCS Development 43 GVCS Replication 14 Similar Projects Partnerships and Open Culture 53 In the News 14 Education 15 Food 18 Energy 42 Health 2 Sustainable Architecture 21 Transportation 10 Household 6 IT Web Infrastructure 110 Shared Personal Notes 1 New Communities 10 Other Languages 34 Project Management 4 Proposal and Development Status 10 Organizational Development 26 Team Logs 4 OSE Core Team 1 OSE IT Core Team 2 OSE Collaboration Platform Core Team 6 Resource Development
