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.abstractThe CAMTAC plant in Guelph, Ontario manufactures a number of cylinder heads for Caterpillar machines. The C27 is the largest cylinder head manufactured at the plant, weighing approximately 270kg. At the C27 rework station technicians currently use a metal bar to manually flip the cylinder head to access the opposite side, causing excessive strain on the shoulder and back. A design solution is proposed for the mechanical manipulation of CAMTAC C27 cylinder heads. The design utilizes specially designed mounting brackets combined with a motorized lift table and a high-torque electric motor to rotate the cylinder head 180 degrees about its long axis and safely return it to resting position. The design is expected to cost approximately $5500.en
