1 Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, The Ohio State University Student Design Competition Capstone Design (ME 4902) Shawn Midlam-Mohler Assistant Professor

2 Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, The Ohio State University S.D.C. Capstone Overview The College of Engineering hosts a more than 30 student design projects: Students involved in these activities can use the content as their capstone design project (under certain conditions…) A student design team of 3-6 seniors is created The project gets the approval of the course instructor The project gets the approval of the design competition’s faculty advisor The student design team finds an appropriate advisor for the project

3 Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, The Ohio State University Student Design Competitions Motorsports Projects: Formula SAE BAJA SAE Buckeye Bullet EcoCAR 2 Electric Motorcycle Many Other Design Competitions

4 Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, The Ohio State University Key Entities in Student Design Capstone Design Team: 3-6 students Client: Team Advisor + Team Leaders Design Advisor: OSU Faculty/Staff Design Instructor: OSU Faculty/Staff Design Team: 3-6 students Design Team: 3-6 students Student Project Team (Volunteers + Grad Students) Design Advisor: OSU Faculty/Staff Design Advisor: OSU Faculty/Staff

5 Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, The Ohio State University S.D.C. Capstone Overview The course sequence results in weeks of working on your project with weekly meetings for updates/advice/deliverables It is possible to form interdisciplinary teams via other majors taking the ENG capstone sequence The students taking the ME sequence and the ENG sequence begin working together in the second 7 weeks Funding for these projects comes out of already available team budgets (i.e. need faculty advisor approval)

6 Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, The Ohio State University Recent Projects Buckeye Bullet: Battery Pack Design, 400 Mph Tire Tester, Vehicle Lift EcoCAR: Battery Pack Design, Automated Manual Transmission Actuation System, Automated Manual Transmission Test Rig, Engine EGR and VVT Control, Vehicle Ride and Handling Improvement, Vehicle Charge Port Integration Formula SAE: Brake Tester

9 How to Create a Team / Project If you are on a design competition already, find some other seniors and form a team: If you don’t have enough to form a team, recruit a few people outside your team I will also have a pool of interested students who need placed on capstone design team Teams must (usually) be made up of at least 50% “veteran” student design competition members Teams must have a faculty member as an advisor (usually the student design competition’s faculty advisor) Projects should come from working with the design competition team leaders and advisors and then reviewed by the capstone instructor

10 Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, The Ohio State University How to Enroll in this Option (MEs) Enrollment is “permission of instructor”: For students already involved in a student design competition, I need an from your team leader saying you are part of the team Other interested students should send me an with a current resume We will have a meeting later in the semester to get people organized into final teams for next year Entry into this version of capstone depends on availability of projects, advisors, and funding

11 Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, The Ohio State University How to Enroll in this Option (Non-MEs) Enrollment is unofficially “permission of instructor”: For students already involved in a student design competition, I need an from your team leader saying you are part of their team Other interested students should send me an with a current resume Once I have you on my list, I will work with Bob Rhoads to place you into the ENG Capstone sequence Do not enroll in the ENG Capstone directly – if you do this Bob will assume you are doing one of his projects Entry into this version of capstone depends on availability of projects, advisors, and funding
