Description:
This text discusses some of the principles involved in the design of a roller coaster. It is intended for the middle or high school teacher, and physics students. Many of the concepts can be applied to topics other than roller coasters. This book assumes some rudimentary knowledge of physical science. It is a simplified view of what design considerations and science a mechanical/civil design engineer must know when designing a roller coaster.
