Regarding mechanical project which involves innovation and fabrication

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

hello all..:)
i just registered to this seeing fantastic discusssions regarding projects and all...

i too have a mini project in my course. its for a duration of 4 months and at the end of it, some physical fabricated model has to be made ready...i have a group of 3 members and budget is not more than 20000/-

i am in 3rd year of mechanical engg...the idea for the project should be something innovative...we have to make the design for the model, simulate it if required and then make a physical prototype for it within 4 months....

i have to present the idea in front of my professor next week itself so please give some quick suggestions and help me....

Welcome to the PF.

Maybe something to improve vehicle aerodynamics and fuel economy? Like for a truck or SUV or whatever.

Maybe some attachment for a vehicle that can be used in mobile work of some sort. Like a small crane/lifting device for some outdoor work task of some sort.

Maybe an innovative new design for a "stair chair" that is used for evacuating people who cannot walk out of buildings...

stair chair looks good...i ll see into it...relating to vehicle aerodynamics, i thought of buses with better ventilations (which will be very useful in hot countries like mine- India). give me suggestions upon this...
also can you elaborate on the attachment or lifting device...

We have a theme here at the PF, where we require students to do the majority of the work. What are YOUR ideas for your project?

Given your geographic situation, maybe more efficient water purification or air conditioning systems. (If you lived near me, I'd suggest a better furnace. :biggrin:)
