2.00AJ Fundamentals of Engineering Design: Explore Space, Sea and Earth Lab Session #1: An Introduction to the Machines in the Lab Prof. Alex Techet 28 January 2009 Roedolph Opperman, Jaime Mateus 1. Introduction This document provides instructions for manufacturing a floatation device from PVC pipe. Students are provided an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in using machinery in the lab while constructing these devices that can be used for their projects later in the semester. 2. Objective The aim of this exercise is to introduce students to the lab machinery that will be utilized extensively throughout the construction phase of the semester project. An equally important outcome is to teach students the inherent dangers and safety issues that accompany working in a lab with rotating and cutting machinery. 3. Floatation Device (Buoy) The floatation device will consist of a section of PVC pipe (8" in length) that is enclosed with a PVC cap at each end. See Fig. 1. Figure
