Engineering Designand Research Welcome to ENGINEERING DESIGN AND RESEARCH. Upon entering the class please have a seat towards front of the class (Do not move chairs from one table to another).
Course_OverviewEngineering Design offers students the opportunity to understand and apply knowledge / skills required to create & transform ideas + concepts into a product that satisfies specific requirements. Students will experience design engineering in the creation, synthesis, iteration, and presentation of design solutions. This course will maintain a focus on: the history (and future) of engineering, how engineers apply mathematical, scientific, creative, and technical knowledge / skills in creation (refinement) of technical products/systems. A key approach will be the employment of a sequential, and iterative design and development process to solve authentic engineering tasks/problems. .
. The following major ‘topics’ or ‘chapters’ will be included to organize instruction of appropriate standards and benchmarks and reflect contemporary engineering industry practices:• Principles of Design• Engineering Resources• Engineering Design Process• Project Management
Major projects = Rockets - Team America Rocket Challenge – Work in a team to develop a rocket that can launch an uncooked egg 700 feet in air, deploy recovering system to safely land egg as close to 45 seconds as possible.Green Energy Design – Research & design a ‘concept’ Green Home that is off ‘the grid’– Develop floor plans, Build ‘to scale’ modelTopic Investigations – Research specified area of engineering to create a presentation that includes written report, power point presentation and informative video .
*Portfolio/Journal: To document and support participation and progress in the class students will submit a project portfolio/Journal documenting the student’s work. Portfolio format – The portfolio should be presented in the following format.Title Page - Include name of challenge, team name and logo, name of student and mod number.Table of ContentsBody – Design Brief,Class notes (Class reading, video, or computer research lesson), data, design sheets, and modifications.Conclusion – Was solution successful?

Engineering Design and Research L5 – Safety ReviewSafety VideoSafety test • OBJECTIVE : Safety • DRILL: Identify three important safety rules to follow while working in the Technology Lab
How many of the following rules did we get? • When working around machines with moving and/or spinning parts be sure to secure dangling jewelry, long hair, loose clothing, and remove accessories that might get caught. • When working with equipment focus on what you are doing. Do not speak to people operating machines. • Stay out of machines ‘Safety Zone’ (3 foot perimeter) if you are not directly involved in operation. • Immediately report all accidents/ injuries to instructor. • Report any ‘unsafe’ conditions to instructor • Use tools / equipment only as directed and after instruction • Do not carry hand tools etc. in your pockets
A few more important safety items • Tools for cutting should be sharp…Dull tools cause injuries • Wear safety glasses • Return tools and equipment to proper location as soon as you are finished using it! • Do not carry long stock by balancing it in center. • Wear an apron to protect / secure clothing • Do not put sharp tools or hot items near neighbors, face, or handle carelessly. • Do not use electrical tools or items in such a way that is likely to cause shock. • Always leave class with same number of body parts that you entered with.
SAFETY VIDEOThe following video deals with safety in the Tech Ed lab, as well as general safety rules to follow outside of class. As there is so much information presented in video you will not be asked to take notes. You are expected to pay attention
SAFETY QUIZPlease be sure to immediately fill in name, period and date.Do not write on question sheet.
Safety Test Answers • 1 = F 11 = F 21 = c • 2 = T 12 = T 22 = A • 3 = T 13 = T 23 = D • 4 = F 14 = F 24 = B • 5 = T 15 = T 25 = B • 6 = T 16 = T 26 = A • 7 =T 17 = F 27 = C • 8 = F 18 = F 28 = A • 9 = T 19 = F 29 = D • 10 =F 20 = T 30 = C
Consider these two images. One is a serene setting found throughout the globe. The other is an example of technological beauty. However, in order to have the convenience and beauty of a bridge, there will be considerable tradeoffs with respect to ethical, political, and economic constraints. • Create a note sheet titled Engineering Tradeoffs and Constraints and • 1) Identify Ethical, Political, Economic, and Ecological tradeoffs / constraints that must be considered in bridge design and location
Engineering Design Research L6 Design Requirements and Prioritizing Constraints Text: Engineering & Technology Chapter 2 pp 49 – 88 Objective: Prioritize Design Constraints to Avoid Conflict Between Economic, Ethical, Safety and Political Issues. DRILL: Explain how Economic, Political, and Ethical issues can arise in trying to create a car to meet the challenges of high gas prices and pollution concerns. What other issues might arise in the car design?
Engineering Design Research L6 Design Requirements and Prioritizing Constraints Text: Engineering & Technology Chapter 2 pp 49 – 88 Read pages 48 – 52 As you read please answer feedback questions 1 & 3 on page 53. Look at figure 2.3 and read the supporting text. How did the variations between designed and constructed walkways cause the failure
Kansas City Hyatt Regency Hotel Walkway Collapse Background The Hyatt Regency Hotel was built in Kansas City, Missouri in 1978. This hotel consisted of a 40-story hotel tower and conference facilities, which were connected by an open concept atrium. Inside the atrium, there were three walkways that connected the hotel to the conference facilities on the second, third, and fourth floors. The atrium was 145 feet long, 117 feet wide and 50 feet high.
The Hyatt Regency Walkway Collapse Presented By: Jonathan Foster 4/9/02
An Engineering Disaster Kansas City, Missouri - 1981
July 17, 1981 • Approximately 2000 People Came for a Dance Competition • At 7:05 pm a large crack was heard and two walkways collapsed • Leaving 114 Dead and Left over 200 injured
Gillum-Colaco International Inc. (G.C.E. Inc.) Proposed Design for the Walkways • wide flange beams were to be used on either side of the walkway which was hung from a box beam • a clip angle was welded to the top of the box beam which connected to the flange beams with bolts • one end of the walkway was welded to a fixed plate while the other end was supported by a sliding bearing • each box beam of the walkway was supported by a washer and nut which was threaded onto the supporting rod
The Revised Design • one end of each support rod was attached to the atrium’s roof cross beams • the bottom end went through the box beam where a washer and nut were threaded on • the second rod was attached to the box beam 4" from the first rod • additional rods suspended down to support the other levels in a similar manner
Reasons For Disaster • Lack of Communication • Interpreting Preliminary Drawings as Finalized Drawing • Insufficient Review of the Final Design
Kansas City Hyatt Regency Hotel Walkway Collapse Timeline The project began in 1976 with Gillum-Colaco International Inc. (G.C.E. Inc.) as the consulting structural engineering firm. They were contracted in 1978. The construction on the hotel began in the spring of 1978. In December of 1978, Havens Steel Company entered the contract to fabricate and erect the atrium. The following February, Havens changed the design of the connection for the second and fourth floor walkways from a single to a double rod. During construction in October 1979, part of the atrium roof collapsed and an inspection team was brought in to investigate the collapse. G.C.E. vowed to review all the steel connections in the atrium. In July 1980, the hotel was open for business. On July 17, 1981 at 7:05 p.m., a loud crack was heard as the second and fourth floor walkways came crashing down to the ground level. There were about 2000 people gathered in the atrium for a dance contest. After the collapse, 114 people were dead and left more than 200 were injured.
