use of polyhedrons (tensile strength)

use of polyhedrons (tensile strength)

Hello all,

I am experimenting in a private lab the usage of various types of polyhedrons for use in aersopace/automotive and heavy equipment (earth movers) for extreme durability and strength. The biggest complaint from across the board is the immense amount of wear and tear that is caused and thus adds extraneous costs to the assets (which already cost a lot of money)

Was wondering if anyone could shed some light or refer me to a text that would help with this. I am seeking various options for creating mechanisms and or new designs to aid these processes

RE: use of polyhedrons (tensile strength)

Don't take this the wrong way, but I have no idea what you are describing. I don't understand what the purpose of the polyhedrons is, nor why this would add wear and tear to the machines. Can you add some details to clarify?
