performance will be due in lab the following week. (See the Guidelines for the Project Report below). Lab Assignment 7 - Presentation
Your team will make a 5 to 10 minute presentation describing the design and results of performance testing. (See the Guidelines for the Project Presentation below). A report documenting your design and its performance will be due in lab the following week. (See the Guidelines for the Project Report below and the rubric that describes how your report will be evaluated).
Figure 1. Schematic of Wind Turbine Tower Supports and Dimensions. The supporting structure for the wind turbine is to be constructed and attached between the upper and lower support plates as shown. The support plates are 0.75 inches thick pine or Douglas fir wood. The 17 in. separation distance must be maintained to within ±1/16 in. or points will be subtracted from your performance score. The support structure must not extend beyond the envelope defined by the base dimension of 11.75 x 11.75 in. over the 17 in. in height. The upper support plate sides must be nominally parallel to the lower support plate sides as depicted in the sketch. The support structure is to be attached to the upper and lower support plates by suitable means, however the support plates may not be otherwise modified.
