TEAM 36 SE 103 FINAL PRESENTATION

  1. 1. SE 103 - Conceptual Structural Design | Van Den Einde TEAM 36 Samuel Au | Gurunath Nesarajah | Paul Lee | Kan Thongnoppakun | James Chandruang December 8, 2015 ELEVATED VACATION HOME PRESENTATION
  2. 2. Purpose and Background ● Luxurious Vacation Home ● Withstand lateral & dead load ● Location ○ Borrego Springs, California ● Model Substructure & House Site Layout
  3. 3. Conceptual Design ● Substructure ○ Achieve lowest lateral deflection ○ Lightweight and Low cost ○ Satisfy constraints and accommodate testing rig ○ Chevron braced ● Superstructure ○ Unique ○ Fitting in and standing out ○ Functionality
  4. 4. Engineering Concepts ● Braced frame ○ Chevron bracing ○ Materials ● Modeled and analyzed in SAP for deflection and axial forces ○ Assumptions made ○ Obtained bucking case with hand calculations ○ Both results indicate that it will not buckle ■ Verified with SAP analysis Axial Force (AC) SAP Axial Force (AC) Hand Calculation Error 19.3 Compression 29.762 Compression 54.2% AC
  5. 5. Structural Performance ● Vertical frame system load path ● Failing Member ○ Construction Error ○ SAP assumption error ○ Material property assumptions ● Predicted PI vs Actual PI ○ Stiffness factor Predicted vs Experimental Predicted Experimental Error Performance Index 2350 3410.96 45.15% Ultimate Force 35 lbs 29.131 lbs 16.79% Deflection .21 in .603 in 187.14%
  6. 6. Aesthetics ● Oasis Themed ● Balance ○ Symmetrical circular pattern ○ Desert color and texture ● Order ○ Fits Borrego Desert environment ○ Repetition of circular pods ● Integrity ○ 360 Rotational House ○ Substructure reinforces stability and strength ● Meaning ○ Oasis: Calm in midst of chaos ○ Embodies an ideal vacation home
  7. 7. Conclusion ● Communication and collaboration is vital ● Imperfections will happen ○ Minimize and account for imperfections ○ SAP Model representation ● Innovative Design ○ Desert Oasis ○ Maintaining functionality ○ Achieves safety standards ○ Cost efficiency
