Team Vision for Subsystem Level Build & Test Phase
The team was focused on building and testing the first (X) dimension. Additionally, supplies for the second (Y) dimension was ordered.
Accomplishments during this phase include...
- Stress testing the X dimension for motor heat.
- Testing concrete material for extrudability, penetration, slump.
Test Results Summary
Various tests from the test plans were performed. Additionally, some objective experiments were performed to assess the feasibility of the concrete and electro-mechanical systems.
Concrete Material Testing
From all testing, it was determined that 25.5% is a good concrete to water by mass ratio.
Extrusion TestsThis stage included the first example of stacked extruded concrete. The images below show the extrusion samples.
A set of slump tests were performed. The document (TODO: Add Mixture Qualification Procedures) details how the concrete mixtures were tested. A number of the tests were omitted based on learnings from other tests.
Risk and Problem Tracking
Plans for next phase
- As a team, where do you want to be in three weeks at your next demo?
- As an individual on the team, what are you doing to help your team achieve these goals? (Use the individual 3-week plan template for this)
