1 e-Zapper Mobilized Support for destroying IED’s 1/C Emison, 1/C McHugh, 1/C Merrick, 1/C Schnappinger, 1/C Tang, 1/C White, 2/C Schwamberger Mentors: Prof. Nelson, Prof. Ziegler, CDR Hamilton, USN, CDR Nolan, USN, Steve Andrews of Technical Options and Mr. Delikat Funded by ONR/EOD NSWC-Indian Head (Scott Stewart)

2 2007 Project Objective Mobilize the e-Zapper system Design a platform on which the e-Zapper can be mounted. Determine the Power Requirements to run the e-Zapper These objectives have been divided into three sub-teams Vehicle Dynamics Power Generation Heat Transfer and Radiation

3 Problem Statement Loading and unloading the e-Zapper unit onto a platform suitable for transporting the system

7 Loading and Unloading the e- Zapper Using a simple ramp and track system, the e-Zapper can be placed on the tracks and winched up and down the ramp.

8 The Concerns Weight distribution within the trailer The weight of the e-Zapper on the ramp The strength of the rollers used Aligning the rollers with the track The angle of approach and high centering The winch requirements Fabrication of a front end support for e- Zapper

11 The Ramp System

12 The Ramp Selected Landsport company COMBO 40,000 lb. Capacity*, 16-foot Ramp Modular that doubles as 20,000 lb. Capacity Load Levelers (Plenty of strength to support e-Zapper) 4 segments, 8 feet long, 20 inches wide Price: $1995

13 The Rollers Swivel top roller dolly 5,000 lbs capacity each Steel 8 (length) x 6 (width) x 4.5 (height) in. $240.00 per roller 6 rollers needed

14 6.58 o 16’ ramp 23” vertical to the trailer bed Angle of Approach *Figure not to scale

15 Break Over Angle 42 o Giving a maximum angle of approach 48 o, without bottoming out on the interface of the ramp and the trailer bed. 22”

16 The Winch Requirements F_gravity F_sliding F_normal 16’ Ramp F_gravity= 9,200 lbs F_normal= F_gravity*cos(6.58)= 9,139 lbs F_sliding= F_gravity*sin(6.58)= 1,054 lbs F_total= 1785 lbs (F_sliding + F_static) *F_total is the force needed to move the e-Zapper up the ramp 6.58 o

17 Winch Requirements (cont’d) F_static friction=C_sf*F_normal =(0.08)*(9139)=731.12 lbs F_rolling friction=Crr*F_normal (0.05)*(9139)=457 lbs F_total=F_sliding+F_static friction (F_static friction is limiting factor) F_total=1785 lbs We will want to use a winch with a higher capacity so as to increase the speed of line and also make sure a certain level of safety is met.

18 The Winch $490.00

19 The Front End Support The need to design and fabricate a support for the front end of the e-Zapper Must be the same width as the rear supports in order for the rollers to align with the track. Bending and compression stresses need to be taken into consideration.

21 Front End Support: Display of Loads and Restraints Front End Support: Display of Deflection Front End Support: Display of Safety Factor

22 Shopping List Trailer to specification Ramp Rollers Jack Stands (for trailer support when loading/unloading/no_e-Zapper situations) Jack (for use with jack stands) Winch

23 To Be Done Front Support –Already engineered, needs fabrication –To hold front end of e-Zapper –Load Distribution U-Track System –Necessary for alignment of e-Zapper during loading and unloading –Precision is vital (1/16” tolerance recommended)
