1 Tchop Dog Bike Rack ET 494 Senior Design II Instructor: Cris Koutsougeras Advisor: Cris Koutsougeras By: Rhett Falcone December 4, 2013

2 Abstract: The idea for this project began with Suzanne Lanks and Demetri Melekos wanting to design a bike rack that will promote the usage of bicycles in and around the New Orleans area and promote tourism. Criteria: Minimal footprint on sidewalk Ease of use Design simple, low maintenance bike rack Theft and vandal deterent

3 Methodology : Bikes will be on an inclined angle U-channel steel to guide bikes in place Holds up to 6 bikes Kiosk allows users to access local hotspots and tourist information 3.5 in by 3.25 in channel tubing and.25 in thickness Galvanized steel used for construction

4 Design: Front View

5 Design : Side View of Single bike slot Guide Channel Slots for 6 bikes with covered support over kiosk

6 Current Designs : From Amazon.com From Citibikenyc.com Bike Arc From bikelaneliving.com

7 Drawbacks of Current Designs : Bike arc requires user to hold bike in place while locking Citi bike requires you to rent their bikes and charge you for time used Minimal security Basic racks can be an eye sore

8 Deliverables: Design rack in Comsol or CAD Use Comsol for stress analysis Design Combination lock with automatic reset Design theft proof locking mechanism Use 3-D printer for small scale prototype Aesthetically Pleasing

9 Timeline October 10: Met with Ms. Lanks and Mr. Melekos to get Criteria October 15: Visited bike shop to get measurement of bikes October 25: Initial Presentation November 8: Finalize design and begin drawing in Comsol November 22: Use 3-D printer to build prototype November 29: Continue Assembly of small scale prototype December 6: Final Presentation
