Abstract

A cargo rack with a removable folding ramp was constructed to load and transport recreational vehicles. This requires a lightweight design that provides enough strength to support the projected loads. The testing will consist of loading 450 pounds on the cargo rack and using the ramp to load 750 pounds. The results for the testing will be successfully transporting a 450-pound load on the cargo rack and successfully loading a 750-pound load with the ramp. This paper further explains the process of designing and manufacturing the cargo rack and ramp. The design was obtained with the use of beam deflection and shear stress. The lengthy manufacturing process will also be broken down in this paper. Keywords: Cargo Rack, Ramp, Load, Transporting, Beam Deflection, Shear Stress, Manufacturing.
