    I don't think this is in the right place. Well, I need to do a senior physics mini project and i want to do it on something I like. I can do this on almost any thing physics related. Do you guys have any ideas like explaining on how truck winching and the different aspects of physics in trucking. Any info or Links are greatly apprecitated. Thanks Guys

    Dont know if this will help for what your doing but go to pirate 4x4, get on there tech area and Billa Vista has the most amazing winch info I've ( uneducated redneck) seen.

    HS level physics or college level physics?

    There's torque multiplication in the reduction gears, but torque loss in the cable layers left on the drum. Rigging has gains and losses (power vs. speed). There's losses in angled pulls, but that's almost more a statics calc than a physics calc.

    If it is a calc based physics you can use angle of pull to upright a long beam. And then investigate the best height/angle of pull for a given length/weight of the beam.
