(2) Well done.
This was the only answer that was 100 percent correct.
Hilly terrain is probably quite bumpy. Therefore, the effects of vibration
and the need for appropriate restraints should be considered. We could also
expect the road surface, in some cases, to be very dusty. Therefore, proper
ventilation must be provided.
All the answers above contained some conditions or variables that need
to be studied when a vehicle is designed for land travel.
well as restraints, and the appropriate cushioning devices have to be
Noise and visibility also are factors which impinge on the
Toxic fumes and dust particles need to be
considered as well. Would you provide individual protective gear for such
pollutants, or would it be best to design the SALV to be a self-contained
protective unit? These questions really can't be answered without knowing
the size of the SALV, its cost, and a host of other things that you and your
team members must discuss.
The SALV should also be studied in relation to its air capabilities.
Remember, it can travel at speeds of 150 mph when it needs to go from island
to island. The island hopping is a necessary aspect of the coastal defense
system for the United Colonies of the Atlantic. In any take-off situation
the G-forces wouldn't be large; let's say no more than 3+G forward
time (even as long as 30 minutes), but for our purposes, this length of time
However, you do need to take into account the effects of vibration,
In addition to the effects and consequences of motion, is there also
one other major consideration?
(1) Yes, motion sickness. Turn to Page 82.
(2) Yes, hypoxia. Turn to Page 22.
(3) No, we've covered everything. Turn to Page 91.
