Transcript

  • 1. Floatable Foundation
    John Tobias, Brian Jestice,
    Anthony Cairns,
    Diane Kohlin
  • 2. What it is?
    It is a foundation ,that can float, for a dwelling so if the land floods the dwelling will just float instead of being destroyed.
  • 3. Where would they use it?
    The Republic of South Africa is a country located at the southern tip of Africa, with a 2,798 kilometers (1,739 mi) coastline on the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.
  • 4. 100% Recyclable Materials
    14 plastic bottles
    1 palate
    1 rope
  • 5. Inventor drawings
  • 6. Construction
  • 7. Prototype
  • 8. Testing the Model
  • 9. Calculations
    Finding an average density of muddy water by comparing the densities of dirt and water in a 1:5 ratio:
    2002*1/6=333.6667kg/m3
    1000*5/6=833.3333kg/m3
    333.7+833.3=1,167kg/m3
    density of muddy water: 1167 kg/m3
  • 10. Calculations
    Finding the amount of water the frame of a whole palate could displace at a maximum.
    (3)(.50)(5.5)(32)+(2)(1.5)(50.25)(3.5)+(9)(.5)(3.5)(32)=264+527.625+504=1295.625in3
    1295.625in3= 0.0212 m3
  • 11. Calculations
    Amount of Water displaced by bottles:
    14 bottles
    .002m3 minimum volume of one bottle
    14(.002m^3)= .028 m3
  • 12. Calculations
    Finding the total amount of weight the foundation can hold, accounting for only the bottles:
    ∑Forces = 0 = mg
    ρfluidVdisplacedg
    mg= ρfluidVdisplacedg
    mmax= ρfluidVdisplacedg
    g
    mmax=ρfluidVdisplaced
    mmax=(1167kg/m3)(.028m3)= 32.676 kg
  • 13. Calculations
    Amount of weight the foundation can hold only accounting for the frame:
    ∑Forces = 0 = mg
    ρfluidVdisplacedg
    mg= ρfluidVdisplacedg
    mmax= ρfluidVdisplacedg
    g
    mmax=ρfluidVdisplaced
    mmax=(1167kg/m3)(.0120m3)=14.03kg
  • 14. Calculations
    Ratio of the frame used to the total size of one palate: 28.5/50.25= 56.72%
    Therefore the net mass able to be supported by 56% of the palate (current model) is: 14.03kg+32.676kg=46.708kg=102.97 lbs
    Therefore it can be concluded that a full scale palate is able to support 83.4kg=183.86lbs
