The armature subsystem contains many pivotal structures such as the strain arm and attachment points for force application and counterbalance.
Blocks will be built primarily from Aluminum 6061 and pretty much be intertwined with every subsystem.
The Mounting Subsystem consists of the mounting for our armature system to the base team's reciprocation system. It also contains the subsystems for movement in the X axis and supports and raises the armature.
The Counterbalance system is what allows the force application to be applied in the amount specified by negating the weight of the system with a weight on a threaded rod on the opposite end.
Force ApplicationForce Application
The Force Application system will consist of weighted masses with a center hole placed onto a rod.
The weights will be locked down with a nut to ensure they do not move. The nut is included with the counterbalance.
Strain Gauges will be used to measure the friction force that is outputted by the system. They will be placed along the strain arm. Wires will run along the top of the system and out at the balance fulcrum.
Iterative activities to demonstrate feasibility, including assumptions you made in your analyses or simulations. Have you completed sufficient analysis to ensure that your design will satisfy requirements? Have you included all usage scenarios in your modeling?
Drawings, Schematics, Flow ChartsDescribe your design in enough detail for someone else to recreate it. Have you included assembly plans and user manuals? Your team may want to create separate nodes and/or directories for CAD, Schematics, or Software
