A new form of transportation is wanted for clean, more efficient travel. Requirement & Specifications Nastran Simulation Concept Selection Manufacturing Results Test Result […]
Generating Green Energy on Campus Sustainable green energy generation has been agreed upon by many as the most important combatant to global warming. There are wide-scale green energy options available, like solar panel farms or nuclear power plants, but green energy is relatively inaccessible to the average college student. The current average college student will […]
Team Mentor Patrick Ellsworth Project Overview Abstract The aerospace industry has embraced additive manufacturing to increase efficiency and lower the costs of satellite and rocket components. The goal of this project is to design and develop a satellite component known as a Secondary Mirror Support Structure (SMSS) for aerospace company L3Harris Technologies that can be […]
Team Kermit Cart Project Description The drill-powered cart allows for an alternative, more affordable and accessible option to that of your standard internal combustion engines. Three teams competed, within the requirements and specifications provided below, to optimize a cart to race around the Eastman quadrangle on design day. Concept Selection Frame: A flexural test was […]
Abstract/Introduction Getting around campus effectively is a daily struggle at the University of Rochester. This project aims to create a drill powered vehicle to navigate campus which is an affordable, efficient, and convenient solution. The best vehicle will be determined by an endurance race with a Monte Carlo start to determine a winner among the […]
Design an interchangeable, fixed offset, fixed gear-ratio eccentric tool spindle for gravity-loaded optical polishing procedures.
Investigating the influence of heat sources on the Laboratory for Laser Energetics’ Omega-60 transport mirror structure.
URMC Orthopedic Rehab Senior Design Team Jose Luis Corredor Alvarez, Keagan Hemsley, Gabriel Lundy, and Joseph Moore Mentor Monica Zaso Abstract The objective of this senior design project is to improve rehabilitation via a wearable device that assists the fingers of the human hand to complete its range of motion and return impaired hands […]
Team Mentor Seth Werlin Abstract The purpose of this project is to create a more accessible way for children to draw pictures on paper. In this project, the team attempted to design a device that would allow children of all physical and developmental abilities to draw. The design is a 2D translation stage, powered by […]
Team Mentors Sponsor Dr. Calvin Uzelmeier Project Manager Professor Christopher Muir Abstract Sponsored by the Rochester Museum and Science Center (RMSC), the team was tasked with creating an interactive display that would educate users about a specific scientific topic. The display chosen should educate the public about fluid dynamics concepts including lift and drag forces […]
This project’s goal was to develop an easily reproducible robot for use in ECE216 for students to learn about motor controllers. The robot was required to be modular, so each wheel has its own module that can be controlled independently and can move/rotate in any direction.
Team Mentor Christopher Muir Project Description The Human Powered Vehicle Competition (HPVC) is an annual competition hosted by ASME where various universities build vehicles to compete in a 2.5-hour endurance race. This year the rules have changed such that an electrical motor has been allowed to power the vehicle. The vehicle is a hybrid tricycle […]
