    Abstract: This paper discusses the application of generative design of mountain bike frames using Solidworks and MATLAB Simulink software. The topic is taken from the problem of the value of the inertial force that occurs in the mountain bike structure due to the dynamic force acting. The mountain bike in this study was made of epoxy carbon composite materia... Show More

    Abstract: Plant fibers are become an environmentally friendly substitute to glass fibers for the reinforcement of composites, particularly in automotive and civil engineering. The fundamental difference between these two types of fibers is their behavior to the humidity. Plant fibers absorb moisture when they are used as reinforcement in composite materials ... Show More
