Governing Team Documents
- The 1-Page Project Summary provides a brief overview of the project
- The Team Values and Norms, Peer Evaluation identifies the teams list of ethics and behaviors, and provides and evaluation form for each team member
- The Pool vs. Tank Discussion provides a detailed pro-con list of using the RIT pool versus building a tank to use for testing
- The First Presentation was a quick PowerPoint presentation describing the general aspects of the project
Systems Design Review
- The System Design Review Agenda documents all the deliverable's and approximate timelines for the system design review
- The Customer Needs summarizes the customer needs identified through group discussion and interviews with the stakeholders
- The Engineering Specifications summarizes the engineering metrics established by the customer needs
- The Project Plan presents the schedule of project deliverables and important milestones
- The System Integration presents the processes and documentation done to decide on the details of integration with the other teams system
- The Concept Generation lists the processes done on each of the projects functions to generate decisions and feasibility
- The Risk Assessment identifies the risk associated with the project with respect to the team outcomes and the detailed design
Detailed Design Review
- The Detailed Design Review Agenda documents all the deliverable's for the detailed design review including present CAD drawings of design.
- The Test Plan goes through the plan of action when it comes to testing by splitting it up into four preliminary tests: measuring devices test, subsystem test, preliminary system test, and engineer specification testing.
- The Data Acquisition and Validation explains how the data generated from each test will be obtained.
- The Preliminary Manufacturing Plan describes the plan of fabrication of the design and which group member is responsible for each sub-system.
- The Risk Assessment Update shows the updated risk assessment of more specific concerns regarding the design.
- The CAD drawings show images of the overall tank design with the sub-assemblies attached and images of the sub-assemblies separate. Note: this is subject to change.
- The Feasibility Analysis consists of the calculations, Ansys simulations, and results that we completed for each sub-system.
- The Project Plan Update shows the details of the next steps regarding MSDII.
- The Customer Needs Update gives the updated version of the customer needs after changes were made and gives a description of how the design plans to accomplish the requirement.
- The Engineering Specifications Update gives an update version of the engineering specs after changes were made to the system.
- Public Documents is where all the Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and SolidWorks versions of the listed documents can be found and are available to the public.
- The Final Decisions are any additional feasibility analyses that have been completed after MSDI and the detailed design review.
- The Instruction Manuals describes the process for setting up and using the system and each sub-system. Also describes the manufacturing process for the tank. Refer to CAD drawings in the Public Documents folder for specific parts used in the building process.
- The Experimental Results represent the experimental data collected during testing.
- The Red, Yellow, Green for Customer Needs describes the end result of each customer need given in the beginning. Red-need not met, Yellow-need nearly met, Green-need completely met.
- The Red, Yellow, Green for Engineering Specifications does the same mentioned above for the engineering specifications.
- The BOM provides the final bill of materials of the project.
- The Project Poster is a quick outline of what our poster will entail.
- The Technical Paper is the final written documentation of the project, where every important aspect is represented.
- The Photo Gallery has a variety of pictures of the final project including final CAD drawings of the final design.
- The Final Presentation is the PowerPoint presentation of the final presentation which will be held February 24th, 2012 at 2pm.

Special thanks and acknowledgements to everyone involved in the designing, building, and testing phases of the tow tank. Team P12642 would like to extend thanks to EPA P3, sponsor of the project, as well as to Dr. Mario Gomes, the customer.
P12462 also thanks RIT faculty Dr. Steven Day for participating on the review of the design, as well as Professor John Wellin for his support intellectually as well as his material donations. Thanks to Kelsey McConnaghy for help understand the MATLAB simulation.
Thanks to Robert Kraynik, Jan Maneti, and Dave Hathaway, members of the RIT Machine Shop where the tow tank was manufactured. Thanks to Mahany Welding Supply for donating the Miller MIG Welder, and RIT Facility Management Services for donating the primer and paint.
Lastly, thanks to Professor Ed Hanzlik for his help and guidance on this journey. It would not have been possible without him.
