P14054: Smoking Machine Revisited


Project Summary Project Information


In order to simultaneously collect emissions and transport undisturbed casts for analysis, current hollow cast models will be combined with the existing side stream smoking machine. Device will operate using acquired data from the wPSMD. Unit needs to be self-contained, portable, fit on a workbench, and user friendly. The unit must also be production ready for identical machines in other labs. During operation smoke needs to be ventilated responsibly and the unit must be interfaced with LabVIEW.

Final Outcome:

In order to meet the standards set by ISO as well as the ones that were set by Dr. Robinson as our customer, Team P14054 was able to combine the efforts of previous senior teams to make an improved smoking machine. The current smopking machine is able to smoke traditional and electric cigarettes and simultaneously collect sidestream and mainstream smoke. Cigarettes are also able to be smoked with various different profiles by uploading the desired profile to the syrince pumps using the LabVIEW program designed to control the smoking machine. For more details on the final design of the smoking machine please see our Senior Design 2 Final Presentation.
