|Project Summary||Project Information|
Arborloos are ecological outhouses that help both provide a means of sanitation for rural communities where conventional water treatment plants are not present and reuse human compost for creation of fertile soil. This project is a continuation of Project P13414 which you can visit here: http://edge.rit.edu/edge/P13414/public/Home
Arborloo designs that are currently used in Haiti are vulnerable to damage from hurricane winds and flying debris. This project will focus on creating a test set up that will allow for safe testing of scale model and full-size arborloo designs to determine hurricane resistance. The existing fluid flow analysis equipment available in KGCOE will be used to replicate hurricane forces. The long term goal of this project is to define the appropriate fluid and scale for testing, devise a test procedure, and provide a recommendation for the optimal arborloo shape and design based on testing results.
