Wheelchair to Frame Attachment Detailed Design

Subject Matter Expert: Professor John Wellin, Sr. Lecturer, Kate Gleason College of Engineering

Meeting Objectives:

Met with Professor Wellin to get possible ideas for attaching the angled beams connecting the wheelchair platform to Beam 3. He suggested that we weld a new plate in the corners of the wheelchair platform structure so that it is the same angle as the beams. A nut fastener on either side of the near plate would be the best option for securing the beam to the plate.
