Project File: Chainsaw part 1

For many products, mechanical performance is important and must be considered during their design. For certain applications, it might be possible to find polymers that are competitive, particularly in terms of cost, weight and corrosion resistance. In this Case Study, we look at materials for a lightweight blade of a chainsaw. It includes deriving performance indices for a stiffness-limited design. We also take durability and cost considerations into account and reflect on the materials of a real chainsaw blade in a reality check. This project file contains the first of two property charts from this case study. It was made in CES EduPack 2019 Level 2 Database and is fully labeled for clarity.
