Hello all, I am new here and this is my first post. I think this question would have made a better general header post, but as I am new it’s not possible.
Does anyone have any experience with using shock loading of their “member” and the results from such? I am wondering as to the effect of trying a DC motor/Servomotor and a logic controller to provide a metered and controlled tension (simple cord around a spindle or timing belt) that either holds steady or perhaps increases and decreases tension is a sinusoidal manner. In addition to this either constant or porpoising tension, pulses, or “jerks” (of a controlled amplitude) be added in, also of either constant or varying “torque” and interval.
Any thoughts, experiences, comments, please chime in as I will probably construct such a device withing a week (work load permitting).
