1 Tower Builder Module LC 1: Data Collection LC 2: MATLAB LC 3: SAP LC 4: Design Challenge Begins! Subassembly Bracing SAP LC 6: Demonstration LC 7: Presentations LC 5: Optimization Courtesy of Dr. Kerry Meyers

2 Today…. Project groups Subassemblies (2 per group) Discussion as a class of all of the subassemblies

3 Project Groups Form project groups Exchange contact info Distribute kits You are responsible for the kit for the next 3 weeks Assign Lockers Write down combination from student assistant Group Deliverable…. Work as a group

4 Project Team Group Work The next few weeks will involve extensive group work We expect you to contribute to your teams success That means: Including everyone in meetings and decisions Following through on your responsibilities Contributing appropriately Too little – not good Too much – not good

5 Evaluating Individual Contributions 10% of you Tower Builder Project grade comes from Peer Evaluation 1. Contributing to the teams work 2. Interacting with teammates 3. Keeping the team on track 4. Expecting quality 5. Having relevant knowledge skills and abilities Upon completion of this project Everyone will evaluate themselves and their peers

6 Subassemblies Divide your group in ½ Work on 2 computers Both sub-groups do both subassemblies to confirm Download from Concourse / Open in SAP Designs to study: Group 1: 1 & 2 Group 2: 1 & 2 Group 3: 3 & 4 Group 4: 3 & 4 Group 5: 5 & 6 Group 6: 5 & 6 Group 7: 5 & 6 Post results on board for everyone Class discussion at the end

7 BRACED FACE INTERIOR BRACING 150 mm F/2 General Constraints: Limited to KNex pieces in your kit Maintain original dimensions of 150 mm x 150 mm in plan and 750 mm in height. The roof and floors (blue bars) cannot be modified Configure connectors so 9 pins snap into testing base You are only to brace in the direction of the applied loading Bracing on the exterior faces of the tower must be identical One plane of interior bracing can also be added to the centerline of the model If no bracing is allowed on a given floor, you can still add 2 vertical members to interior plane

8 Team 1 Floor 1 Floor 4 Floor 2 Floor 3 Floor 5 Background / Usage: Mixed usage. Urban setting with the first 2 floors designated as parking garage so no interior bracing on those floors. The top 3 floors are for a hotel, with the top most floor (floor 5) being the penthouse so no bracing of any kind on that floor. Floors 3 & 4 cannot have any exterior diagonals. Parking Hotel Penthouse of Hotel Limit State (under 4.5N load): 5 mm Note: No bracing on a floor still Allows the addition of the center Plane vertical members

9 Team 2 Background / Usage: Mixed usage. Located near a college campus, the first 3 floors are student apartments (any bracing scheme is permitted). The top 2 floors are high end loft style condominiums that require wide open spacing and unobstructed views (no bracing is permitted). Floor 1 Floor 4 Floor 2 Floor 3 Floor 5 Apt. Condo Apt. Note: No bracing on a floor still Allows the addition of the center Plane vertical members Limit State (under 4.5N load): 19 mm Example: Eddy Street Commons – South Bend, IN

10 Team 3 Background / Usage: Mixed usage. Urban setting with the bottom floor being reserved for store front, the user of which has not been determined. In order to maximize flexibility no diagonal bracing is permitted on exterior of the first floor. The middle 3 floors are financial office suites, any bracing is permitted. Finally the top floor is for a Steakhouse, so no exterior bracing of any kind on that floor. Floor 1 Floor 4 Floor 2 Floor 3 Floor 5 Office Restaurant Store Front Office Limit State (under 4.5N load): 7 mm

11 Team 4 Background / Usage: Mixed usage. The bottom 2 floors are being used by Dave & Busters, and will not allow any interior bracing. The top 3 floors are office space, with the CEOs offices taking up the middle floor. In order to have flexibility for unobstructed views of the city, there is no exterior bracing permitted on the middle floor. Floor 1 Floor 4 Floor 2 Floor 3 Floor 5 CEO Office Dave & Busters Dave & Busters Note: No bracing on a floor still Allows the addition of the center Plane vertical members Limit State (under 4.5N load): 5 mm

12 Team 5 Background / Usage: Mixed usage. The bottom 2 floors are for a theater – they have very few exterior windows so exterior bracing is permitted but no interior bracing. The hotel requires no exterior diagonal bracing (any other form is permitted) Floor 1 Floor 4 Floor 2 Floor 3 Floor 5 Hotel Theater Hotel Theater Limit State (under 4.5N load): 10 mm

13 Team 6 Background / Usage: This building is for IKEA. The first floor does not allow any bracing so store front windows would be unobstructed and there are open areas for displays. Likewise, the top 4 floors are not permitted to have any interior diagonal bracing (any form of exterior bracing is permitted). Floor 1 Floor 4 Floor 2 Floor 3 Floor 5 IKEA Store Front IKEA Limit State (under 4.5N load): 8 mm Note: No bracing on a floor still Allows the addition of the center Plane vertical members

14 Team 7 Floor 1 Floor 4 Floor 2 Floor 3 Floor 5 Background / Usage: This building is a hospital. All floors require minimum obstructions for easy maneuvering & observation, so no interior bracing is allowed. The first floor is for outpatients and is the location of the emergency room- this requires easy access, so no diagonal bracing is allowed on this floor. All other floors allow any exterior bracing scheme. Limit State (under 4.5 N load): 4 mm Outpatient & ER Hospital

15 Reminders Homework 3 Due next week in Learning Center Deliverable GROUP Assignment Please Type (1 pager is fine) The design challenge has been given – you have two weeks to complete your design! No physical testing Project Document is posted in Concourse (bottom)
