dc.descriptionCreated in fulfillment of the course requirements for ENGG*3100 Engineering and Design III. This course combines the knowledge gained in the advanced engineering and basic science courses with the design skills taught in ENGG*1100 and ENGG*2100 in solving open-ended problems. These problems are related to the student's major. Additional design tools are presented, including model simulation, sensitivity analysis, linear programming, knowledge-based systems and computer programming. Complementing these tools are discussions on writing and public speaking techniques, codes, safety issues, environmental assessment and professional management. These topics are taught with the consideration of available resources and cost.en
dc.description.abstractIn this paper we present a state of the art, biomechanically efficient triathlon bicycle. The design consists of a short wheelbase, high racing recumbent frame with an elliptical shaped chainwheel and self-adjusting crank arm. The design was simulated and results showed greater ground force generation and speed from the same muscle input as well as reduction of the notorious dead spot.en
