2015-05-27 (W) Wind Generator Turbine Design Tests

On 2015-05-07 (Th) plastic was cut and drilled for mounting bottles. This was posted out of order and didn't describe the process for creating the shapes. That will be done now.

Cutouts were drafted for making bottle holders out of plastic sheets. 1/4" polycarbonate was in stock and should be thin enough for attaching bottles. The paper cutouts were trimmed with scissors and the centers of the holes were punched out with a hole punch. Center marks on the circles were not long enough to extend beyond the hole punch circle so they were extended with a ruler and pen. Once the paper cutouts were prepared they were positioned on the polycarbonate sheet and traced so it could be cut. Unfortunately the drafting file was lost.

To do:
  • Cut and drill bottle holders
  • Get two liter bottles
  • Construct wind turbines
  • Move on to testing
