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.abstractRainwater harvesting systems are becoming increasingly popular. The basic concept is to collect, store, treat and distribute rainwater for use. The proposed design was developed for the CAMTAC Linamar manufacturing facility in Guelph, Ontario. The design incorporates a 22:7 m3 underground cistern, a filtration and disinfection system, and distribution plumbing to the plant's reverse osmosis unit. Simulations indicate the proposed design has a projected return on investment of approximately 2.3 years and has potential to save 4000 m3 of mains water per year.en
