An analysis of a structural plastic product that needed to be assembled by the consumer was completed. The design review provided suggestions on how to improve the product before the final tooling was completed. In many cases by wearing an "analyst hat" can provide timely suggestions to the design process. An analytical contact analysis was completed and delivered to the client for the axle bearing loads, plastic wheel contact loads for a number exceptional loading cases in the design. A novel analysis method was applied to estimate the rolling loads for rolling over carpeted floors and over low thresholds in office and home applications.
