P09045: Membrane Characterization Test Stand

Joe C.-4

Personal Achievements- Week4:

-Concept generation: listed pros and cons of each type of biaxial loader and decided to proceed with normal (mechanical) biaxial loader.

-Decided to use sutures instead of clamps to minimize edge effects on the membrane sample and use the center of the membrane for the ANSYS analysis.

-Worked with Joe F. and started transforming the membrane indenter tester to a uniaxial loader.

-Came up with list of risk assessments.
