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.abstractA rainwater harvesting system for Linamar's CAMTEC manufacturing plant has been designed. This rainwater system will replace a large portion of the plant water usage. The design includes a network of piping to capture precipitation from the roof, and a pipe network to direct water to a holding cistern. This water will then be filtered and stored in a network of larger cisterns which will be consumed by the reverse osmosis unit feeding the manufacturing processes. The design was analyzed and it was found that an annual savings of approximately $1000 is achievable due to reduced purchasing of city-supplied water.en
