Question
Will a CHECK readout be accepted in SES review for tube bending capability < 100% of an accumulator mount load?
Answer
For 2020, the SES committee will not be overly concerned with accumulator tube CHECK values if the rest of the design is reasonable.
It was included to make student teams consider whether there could be a better location for their chassis-side mounts.
Rather than randomly placing a high load requirement in the middle of a span.

And hopefully take any reasonable steps for improvement.
Designing a strong mount without paying attention to the underlying structure is not good engineering.
