  30. Table of Contents • Introduction • Educational objectives • Brainstorming Ideas • Concept Development • Conclusions • References • Appendix

  31. Introduction • Saw an opportunity to provide elementary school children with a room that focused specifically on how water works in a system. • In order to understand how to create the best design, we had to research various topics before designing the room. • After researching these topics, we specified several specifications and began brainstorming ideas. • We designed a screening matrix of several brainstorm ideas in order to determine which ideas to pursue • After determining which ideas we were going to use, we drew up a bill of materials in order to determine the cost of each experiment

  32. Educational Objectives 1. To experiment with pressure variation and water flow(aerodynamics) 2. To allow modification of the system to understand importance of runoff 3. To design a means to reuse water throughout entire system 4. To size and experiment with pumping designs 5. To experiment with means of water treatment and it’s impact on house design 6. To design and construct a household water system from a systems perspective

  33. Brainstorming Ideas Concept Variants • Pumps • Filtration • Run-off/Reuse of water • Piping • Hydraulics • Hydropower/Aerodynamics Analysis of Brainstorming ideas

  34. Brainstorming Pumps • Interactive Hand Crank • Pressure Variation Demonstration (transparent including pressure gauges) • Flow of Water to other areas • Interactive Hand Pump, faucet end • Vacuum and Pressure Variation Demonstration with gauges • Flow of water • Electric Centrifugal pump • Flow of water • Pressure Variation Demonstration with attached gauges

  35. Brainstorming Filtration Interactive water filter(Similar Concept with use of contained materials) • Water Filtration • Flow of water • Reuse of Water • How water is filtered in a system • Screen filtration • Flow of water through a filter

  36. Brainstorming Reuse of Water Green Roof with long pipe artificial rain sprayer • Importance of runoff demonstration • Reuse of water (collected and distributed) • Use of an interactive pump Green Roof with artificial rain sprayers • Importance of runoff demonstration • Reuse of water (collected and distributed) • Use of an interactive pump

  37. Brainstorming Piping Piping through the floor studs • Interact and easy to build • Teaches about flow and location of water throughout the house Slotted fittings for pipes throughout floor

  38. Brainstorming Piping Piping on the wall using wall clamps • Interactive and easy to assemble • Water flow and location throughout the house

  39. Brainstorming Hydraulics Various Pressure Gauge tubes • Pressure variation throughout pipes • Display the flow of water High>>>Low Pressure Varying pipe diameter flow demonstration Various Pressure Gauge tubes • Pressure variation throughout pipes • Display the flow of water High>>>Low Pressure • Shows how water pressure varies when water flows through varying pipe diameters • Pressure gauges shows the water pressure as it flows through a pipe

  40. Brainstorming Hydropower/Aerodynamics Aerodynamic water particle flow wall • Multiple interact shapes can be moved by magnets throughout flow wall • Thickness of two layers of plexiglass with water in between <1 inch • Flow of water with particles and aerodynamics(explains why planes fly) Water Wheel • Wheel turns as water flows through it, creating power • Hydropower; shows how power is generated through spinning a turbine

  41. Concept Development • Further Analysis & Selection of Design Ideas • Weighted Matrices: • Education and Interaction • Ease of Use • Durability • Cost

  42. Concept Development • Final designs • Drawing sketches
