Open-Ended Engineering Design Project I EGN 4930 - Foundations of Engineering (Fall 1999) Goal/Purpose Apply some of the fundamentals of engineering to a group design project. Objectives Design a mechanism to climb a pole. Specifically, the mechanism should be designed to climb a 1/2 inch conduit pipe 6 feet high. Note that 1/2 inch conduit pipe does not have an outer diameter of 1/2 inch. The pipe will be made available to you in EMB 100. The mechanism should also be designed by keeping in mind the following criteria: reliability of mechanism, aesthetics, creativity, and cost effectiveness. Constraints The following constraints are imposed upon the design: Only 10 rubber bands can be used to supply all energy to the mechanism for climbing the pole. In other words, no other energy source may be used. The rubber bands should be a size 64 (e.g., Alliance Advantage Rubber Bands Size 64 sold in a pack of 100). The power supply (i.e., rubber bands) must be self-contained on the mechanism. In other words, the rubber bands can't be placed at the top of the

    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.
