In the present work, a preliminary design of an eco-sustainable bamboo electric treadmill bike is carried out. It is a new means of transport with zero environmental impact that also allows to overcome the main disadvantage of the indoor training. Bamboo, as an eco-friendly material, has great potential as construction material for bike frames because it represents an alternative for more traditional materials such as steel, aluminum, and composite. A finite element model of the designed prototype is developed and then validated using Abaqus commercial code following the UNI EN 14764 static standard. Numerical analyses show good structural behavior of the designed frame in compliance with the regulations.

Abstract

In the present work, a preliminary design of an eco-sustainable bamboo electric treadmill bike is carried out. It is a new means of transport with zero environmental impact that also allows to overcome the main disadvantage of the indoor training. Bamboo, as an eco-friendly material, has great potential as construction material for bike frames because it represents an alternative for more traditional materials such as steel, aluminum, and composite. A finite element model of the designed prototype is developed and then validated using Abaqus commercial code following the UNI EN 14764 static standard. Numerical analyses show good structural behavior of the designed frame in compliance with the regulations.
