Abstract

The objective of this Major Qualifying Project was to design and construct a load bearing frame capable of supporting the loads when testing ski-bindings in response to tibia torque and valgus moment with respect to the location of the applied loads. This was done in order to provide a standardized starting point for future designs. The team designed a device that required minimal experience in manufacturing and was able to be constructed using off the shelf parts. The final product is capable of supporting and redirecting the loads specified by ASTM F504 to test ski-bindings to the point of release.
