Preliminary Detailed Design

Team Vision for Preliminary Detailed Design PhaseDuring this phase, the team solidified a design for the physical chamber as well as beginning development of the control program in LabVIEW. The chamber was changed slightly, the 4 peltier cells used to heat the water reservoir were moved to a single location and the water reservoir was modified to accommodate this change. Additionally, the bottom plate thickness was decreased from 0.5" to 0.25" and a 0.5" flange for clamping was added around the perimeter. These structural modifications were made in accordance with information gathered from the machine shop.
Bill of Materials (BOM)
This document shows the process that we will under go to show how our design will satisfy all the Engineering Requirements. The developed test plan is arranged chronologically to test all the components that are in the functional decomposition.

Design and FlowchartsSystem and Subsystem Decompositions remain unchanged from the previous cycle.
SoftwareDevelopment of LabVIEW software has begun. LabVIEW uses front/back panel design: front panel is user interface (UI) and back panel is actual code (block diagram format).

Plans for next phase
- Continue refining and developing LabVIEW code.
- Work with ITS to establish proper DAQ drivers on campus computers.
- Refine/update CAD models.
