Instructor use only: Group Number _____________ Score _____________ ST 370 Project Proposal All elements of this form must be typed. The proposal (one per group) is due 10/10/07 by 11:59pm via email. Email proposals to [email protected] . Subject line ST370-003 Group x. Group Members Email address Objectives: (3-5 sentences) To determine if the content of water added to cement will affect the compressive strength of the cured mortar. We will add different substances to the water such as salt, dishwashing soap, and vinegar as well as change the water to cement ratio to observe differences in compressive strength. Response Variable (numeric) Compressive strength (psi) Experimental Unit Mortar test cylinder Factors and Levels given as “Factor (levels1, level2,…)” Water type (tap, salt, soap, vinegar) Water/cement ratio (.9*suggested,

Unformatted text preview: 1.1*suggested) Number of treatments 8 Number of replicates 3 Number of measurements per replicate 1 Total number of observations 24 Amount of time planned for data collection 4 hours Controlled variables given as “Variable (value)” Curing time (7 or 14 days), cement type (type 1), curing temperature (60-80°F), strength tester (will use machine) Blocking variable, if used (not required) Treatment- three members will apply one replicate of each treatment to save time Important sources of experimental error not addressed by the experimental design: Accuracy of compression test- the machine is accurate to 10psi, so results could be inconclusive because of this. Describe how randomization will be used: We will both apply the treatments in random order as well as test the cylinders in random order....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
