Team's Mission Statement
The mission of
this design project team is to complete Phase II of the bearing rig
enhancement, which will make the existing rig viable for use within
a lab setting for a new lubrication and wear class. The enhanced rig,
combined with a data acquisition system, shall be capable of demonstrating
the basic principles of bearing lubrication and dynamics within the
scope of a lab session, and be applicable to accompanying lectures
of the class. Formal labs will be written to accompany the completed
is a model of our completed Phase 2 Modifications.
The rig is
run within a lab section and will be able to demonstrate a few simple
lubrication principles by a controlled variance of parameters coupled
with data acquisition capabilities of other parameters. The rig
may also be used for demonstration purposes.
