1) My contribution to the project this semester is working on the final paper and making sure all of the comments were corrected. I began learning solid works to be able to conduct a finite element analysis of stress on our adapter. This will be con (More)

Since my last post, I have downloaded and began experimenting with solid works. I am practicing conducting the finite element analysis for our next design. Our current design we have learned fails due to the amount of heat generated by high RPMs (More)

Since my last blog post, I download Solid works and familiarize myself with it. I started drawing up ideas for the attachment. After spending countless hours thinking through the design and drawing parts, I completed a rough 3D drawing of the attach (More)
Blog Post 4 A lot of progress has been made since the last blog post. As a group, we have met two more times via zoom and landed on a good starting design for our product. Our team member Dieter drafted it in Solidworks, and shared it with all of (More)

This week I worked on my introduction to our project and discussed the limitations of our adapter. I learned about the stresses in gears from my design textbook. In addition, I learned about shear stresses and how the amount of horsepower exposed to (More)

Since the last blog post, I have suggested my idea of planetary gears to my group and everyone liked it. For now, we are going with the planetary gear system, but otherwise, I haven’t had much of a chance to do any more research since life caught (More)
Since the last progress report via blog post 2, we have progressed more as a group towards our objective. We concluded our brainstorming design phase, and in doing so chose a planetary gear cluster (PCG) to be our design intention. After settling on (More)
