Basic Design Statement: For our design project, we are designing a metal flask for beverages of many types. Because it must be able to hold many types of beverages and keep them cold, we need a metal that will not react with beverages at differing pH levels. We also need a metal that can stand cold temperatures without taking damage. Corrosion is another problem in choosing metals. We would need to use a metal that is corrosion-resistant. Design Approach: Our design for the flask will be similar to that of a traditional flask, a stretched cylinder, with a detachable screw off cap. The body of the flask will be made out of some kind of metal with a thin polymer coating to help prevent corrosion of the flask. We will use a metal because it is relatively cheap to produce with some metals, and because it can help keep any beverage in the flask cold. A) Ideas for selection of materials stainless steel, silver, or hard plastic/glass.
