P49 Chassis stress tests

P49 front and roll hoop stress tests
Preliminary chassis stress tests, 29545 N of resultant force applied during the test to observe possible failure point. Load applied was excessive to fail the material. on in front impact conditions one of the support beams failed which is good i assume. These are only preliminary test that were done couple months back. I will publish more detailed tests in the future with more complete chassis. Survival cell is build from 4130 steel and weighs under 84 kg. in the test some of the support beams were hidden just to make the test faster to get results.
