Flow Tunnel

My main third year project was a group project to design and manufacture a flow tunnel which could then be used for experimentation to assess the accuracy of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software. As usual I headed the design and manufacturing, designing the entire tunnel by myself along with all of the CAD work. I coordinated...

Hand Tool Design

In my second year we were given a short project of designing a cordless hand tool to fit into Bosch's existing range of products. I decided on doing a relatively simple cordless tyre removal kit after helping an old couple change a tyre on the roadside. The idea is that it removes any strength required to...

Motorised Winch

This was a second year group project. The brief was to design and manufacture a winch capable of lifting 250kg. I led the design and again did all of the CAD work. Our design was unique in mounting the rear bearing chamber internally to reduce the length of shaft overhang. It completed testing with no...

Transmission

This was another small first year project to design a fixed reduction transmission, including necessary gear calculations. Many of my cohorts made simple box casings, but I decided to try to do something better thought out and designed a casing suitable for casting, including oil fill plug. Part of the project was to produce engineering drawings...
