Scope
Scope

Demonstrate properties of aerodynamics to young minds (K-12)

Low maintenance

Interactive

Robust and simple as to facilitate many repeated demonstrations


Approach
Approach

Show drag with use of various geometric shapes on carts

Difference in drag shown through race

COMSOL visuals for the various shapes


Problems
Problems

Mary Brogan Museum – closed

Over complicated – simplify current design

Lift ability for airfoil


Current status
Current Status

  • Update design

    • Change the design of objects on carts

    • Review airfoil idea

    • Design review

    • Ordering parts for fabrication


Carts
Carts

Change design to incorporate a large square and a smaller circle

Allows for more discrepancy in the forces

Variety of shapes


Airfoil
Airfoil

  • Limitations

    • Velocity profile of air flow

    • Turbulent nature of air flow

  • Fixed angle of attack


Planning
Planning

Finalize design and have approved

Order materials

Fabricate all necessary parts

Test system



Summary
Summary

Scope has not changed due to Brogan Museum closure

Show drag through use of multiple shapes in race type experiment

Re-examine airfoil possibility

Order required materials
