I am seeking a mechanical engineer to assist with the completion of a new off-road motorcycle helmet. The design incorporates a new safety-design philosophy, as well as materials used.
To-date everything has been made by hand so transitioning it into CAD to further optimise the design is required.
FEA will be necessary as well as crash simulation animation. Animation can be done by someone else if this is not a strong competency.
Analysis will include not only crash simulation (kinetic friction) but also aerodynamics and ventilation to reduce fatigue and wind noise.
Modelling will cover a range of sizes from children to adult sizes, enabling individual tooling for each size.
Four different types of helmets covering 4 different disciplines are envisioned, where three are adapted versions of the original.
