Guidelines for the Project Report

à à

One report for your group

A title page listing: the title of the project (descriptive and specific), the entity for which the report was written, i.e., San José State University, Charles W. Davidson College of Engineering, E10 Introduction to Engineering, the names of the team members, the date of submission.

à

A Summary section that succinctly and specifically states: what you did, how you did it, and what happened/what was learned. This section should consist of approximately three paragraphs, and be about one page long. A photograph that provides a good summary of your project is appropriate for this section.

à

An Introduction section that describes what the project was all about, first in general (refer to this guideline to describe the general goals and requirements), but then specifically, presenting the specific objectives that your design addresses. This section should be at least one page long. Make sure that you include sufficient sketches, drawings, and/or photographs and verbiage to clearly explain to someone unfamiliar with your project what it is all about.

à

A section that describes your design in DETAIL. This section should have figures (i.e., drawings, photos, sketches all with annotation (see p. 3-4 in http://www.engr.sjsu.edu/bjfurman/courses/ME120/me120pdf/ME120labreportguide.pdf for details on how to annotate figures) that document your design. You must have at LEAST an overall photograph, sketch, or drawing to describe your design. You will likely need more to document the turbine blades, the support structure, and the performance results. You will have achieved success in writing this section if a peer in the class could take what you have written, referring to it alone, and reproduce your device.

à

A section that addresses the outcome of the project, such as how well it worked or didn't work, what you would do if you had more time to improve the design, what you learned, etc. Please be specific about the performance of your device and give specific recommendations for improvements or further work.

à

A list of references used. Examples of how to cite references can be found in: http://www.lib.nus.edu.sg/lion/s/citeapa.html http://www.lib.nus.edu.sg/lion/s/apastyle.ppt http://www.engr.sjsu.edu/bjfurman/courses/ME120/me120pdf/ME120labreportguide.pdf.

à

Appendices with any other information that, in your judgment, might be a big help to someone trying to do a similar project (data sheets, catalog pages, etc.).

à à

One presentation for your group. All group members should participate in the presentation

A title slide that lists: the title of the project (descriptive and specific), the entity for which the presentation is being given, i.e., San José State University, Charles W. Davidson College of Engineering, E10 Introduction to Engineering, the names of the team members, the date of presentation.

à

Several slides that clearly show and explain:

  • The design of your turbine blade (include your rationale for why you designed it as you

did)

  • The design of your support tower (include your rationale for why you designed it as you

did)

  • The performance of your wind turbine and support tower:

    • o

      Power generated

      • o

        Height, weight, and stiffness

  • Conclusions and Recommendations for Further Work (also include what you might have done differently knowing what you know now)
