Re: Re[1] Froude numbers, GRF

I understand what the speed would be, but I'd like to know what the GRF is
for FR < 16. The GRF is necessary to figure out how much of the mass would
have to be extensors and therefore whether the speed is possible or not.

Scale from that : It says Fr.: 1 at 5 m/sec-1, Tom Holtz
says Fr.: 3.8 at 9.1 m/sec-1 and Hutchinson says Fr.: 5 at
11 m/sec-1. That would give about fr.:4 = 9.5-10.0 m/sec-1.
(35-36 km/h or 21.5-22 mph).
