Tarun Kumar Singhal
EPU responsible for: – Egg Protection Unit – Main objective of Cansat Design is to provide egg safety from launch to landing – We need a robust design which can withstand the impact of cansat with ground and prevent the egg from any damage.
Provided that the cansat is dropped from a height of 400m and due the descent control mechanism it finally attains a velocity of 10 m/s. So, Initial total energy of the Cansat 1/2mv 2 = 35 joule We need to work out a mechanism which can reduce the energy to ZERO.
125mm Space for parachutes Electronic Components Egg Egg protection system
Spring- Mass Damping Mechanism Spring Egg caps
To design a EPU for the following Specification: 1.Impact velocity 10 m/s 2.Overall dimension :Should be less than specified dimension 3.Mass should be less than 100g (excluding mass of egg, tentative ) R-90mm H- 100mm Deliverables for this Problem Statement: 1.Model Design (on paper ) 2.Some calculations if possible. 3.Idea for EPU Points for this task : 15 Total time: 30min Two teams would be selected from this round (wild card entry)
