Objective: To test two different base configuration with different caster configurations and loads to further our understanding of a final base design.
- Base(s) constructed out of 80/20 aluminum bar stock
- Static Casters
- Swivel Casters
Each team member will partake in this experiment. Each member will push the two different base models up and down a hallway with different caster configurations. Each of the two bases will be tested with the following setups:
- Two static casters in the back, one swivel caster in the front
- Two swivel casters in the back, one static caster in the front
- Weight will be applied to the base each time it is pushed (15 lb max.)
