Alternative Approach To Sand Bags For Flood Prevention Through The Use Of 3d Printed Flood Panels, Thomas Beaver, William Mcbryan, Matthew Gilliam Aug 2019

Alternative Approach To Sand Bags For Flood Prevention Through The Use Of 3d Printed Flood Panels, Thomas Beaver, William Mcbryan, Matthew Gilliam

Washington University / UMSL Mechanical Engineering Design Project JME 4110

This is an alternative approach to sand bags which could save time and money when implementing temporary barriers around critical areas during times of flooding in flood plains or areas near rivers.

Jme 4110 Mechanical Engineering Design Project:Stir It Up, Josephn Biermann, Brittany Gray, Nathan Hopper

Washington University / UMSL Mechanical Engineering Design Project JME 4110

We are designing and building a working prototype that will be able to mix a separated beverage back to a fully integrated state. This will allow for mixing in a beverage that was separated and would possibly just be thrown away because it doesn’t taste right anymore. This will save food waste from separated beverages being thrown away as well as be environmentally friendly since it would reduce the use of single use cups and straws.


One Knee Stair Negotiator, Naomi Marciante, Seth Trevino Aug 2019

One Knee Stair Negotiator, Naomi Marciante, Seth Trevino

Washington University / UMSL Mechanical Engineering Design Project JME 4110

The design-to-prototype process for a One Knee Stair Negotiator, designed to reduce or eliminate the weight on one leg while climbing stairs. The decision-making processes, fabrication plan, engineering analysis, safety concerns, and risk assessments are documented. Pertinent photographs, drawings, and video links are included for clarification.

The Body Dryer Project, Laura Bailey, Luke Maichel, Nick Zuelke Aug 2019

The Body Dryer Project, Laura Bailey, Luke Maichel, Nick Zuelke

Washington University / UMSL Mechanical Engineering Design Project JME 4110

The information contained in this report pertains to the engineering practices to develop a working prototype of a body dryer. A body dryer that is described in the context of this report, is defined as a static structure with two air streams. The main function of the body dryer project is to investigate a replacement for a towel when one is finished showering or after swimming. This report will contain future improvements that were investigated but were not able to implement in the working prototype due to the boundaries of the system. A special shout out to Indoor Comfort Team ...

As you probably know, there are many different sorting systems used by various manufacturers. It would be desirable to have a similar sorting system that uses multiple technologies to sort items, but that could easily be interchangeable with various items. Currently, recycling efforts are often costly, as humans need to sort single-stream recycling. It would be beneficial to have a system that sorts various plastic, paper, cardboard, glass, etc.
