How many ways do we have of describing/understanding rods?

  • taper (dimensional)
  • stress
  • deflection
  • speed
  • energy (force)
  • ???

How many of these are almost quantifiable?  (Jerry Foster)

    I'd add two measures:

    1. Percentage change in taper from station to station - easy to calculate and is remarkably similar to the shape of a stress curve for a similar rod.

    2. Difference between a taper's dimensions and another taper you're familiar with. Bob Norwood's program uses a series of "straight-line-tapers" for comparison purposes.  (Tom Bowden)
