Next year I will be commencing my final year engineering thesis.  It will
involve the fatigue testing of carbon fibre structural components.  I can
construct the component in our labs but the size of the component is
restricted by our test jigs, ie an axial length of 30cm.  Therfore, I am
trying to find drawings and/or plans which show enough detail which will
allow me to reconstruct the component. I have a number of "cut-away"
drawings but they often don't show things such as hard points, and none of
them show dimensions.  The plan need not be of a carbon fibre member, just
as long as the  dimensions fit our equipment.
Can anyone help with a source?  Web or book is fine.
Cheers
John
