Tensile Test

Tensile Test

Break occurred at 25 lbs Cross Sectional Area is 0.002275 in.^2 (width was around 0.175 in.)

Using information: number of strings at 0.175 in. is around 16 strings is around 450lb tensile strength

Volume to Length Output Histogram

Volume to Length Output Histogram

Given the current prototype and testing to date there is a maximum 18.8% range in standardized output per unit volume.This may be attributed to variation in bottle geometry and string width between tests. A larger sample size will need to be collected to determine true variation in production output.

Design Review Materials

Include links to:

It is appropriate for you to send your customer and guide a link to this page in preparation for the review. This will ensure that they know what you will be presenting and how to view all of your work. Any EDGE link should start with http://edge.rit.edu/edge/P1xxxx..... Using "http" instead of "https" will ensure that non-RIT stakeholders can view the content without being prompted for a DCE login and password.

Plans for next phase
