Roller Coaster Restraint Model Question

Wednesday, February 12, 2003 5:11 AM
I am 17 and in high school. One of our requirements to graduate from school is the Senior Project. We have to do a research paper, and have to design or produce a product to coincide with our paper. My paper is on theme park safety, and for my product, I am designing and building a model of a roller coaster restraint system. I was wondering if anybody had any general measurements for seats and lap bars, I was also wondering if anyone has a serial number for AutoCAD 2000, because I lost my registration in the readjustment of my room, and if anyone has any ideas on what type of materials that I would be able to use that are easily pliable yet sturdy.

Thank you in advance for your responses and ideas. You can either post them on this site or email me at . When I finish I promise to post pictures on the net!

Euh.. I don't think it's smart to ask for an illegal serial number, that's a federal offence young man!

There exists a book, the authorship of which I can no longer remember, whose title is, "The Measure of Man and Woman: Human Factors in Design" or something like that. The book contains detailed measurements of people and is a commonly accepted standard for anatomical design. Use that for your measurements so that your design might actually fit real people. (user does a quick web search...) Looks like it was last revised in late 2001.

A good medium may be wood with clay over the top. Heck it's how they design all sorts of things.
