outward force on cams when loaded 15-Jun-2015 At 5:14:39 PM harold
The force is 2x for each side of the crack, but in a flake one side of the crack is the cliff and therefore immovable and all of the force is transferred to moving the expando side. So patto is still right with 4x force outward on a flake. Have I got this right?

Nuts vs Cams? I'm thinking if there is not much friction between the nut with a wedge shape and the rock allowing it to slide easily then the outward force could be very large. But if there is a lot of friction reducing any sliding movement then most of the force could be downward.? Need someone to go out and do a real world test, bounce up and down and see which will break the rock first.
