Question Description

Everything you need to know will be in the files that I upload. Please don't worry about the pictures and video part of the assignment. The purpose of this project is to determine the stability and capability of the paper helicopter using excel to record the information. Followed by a 1500words paper. THANKS!

Proceedings of the TECH 415 Paper Helicopter Optimization Dekalb, IL, April, 2020 PROJECT TITLE Name, Department, Email ABSTRACT You have been tasked with optimizing the flight of a paper helicopter. type, clip (or other weights) position, clip weight, etc. and their effect on achieving stability and capability. Please use this file as your paper template and limit the total text to 1500 words (not more than 200 words in abstract – no photo/table in abstract – abstract would provide a brief overview and major findings and conclusions). There is no limit of figures, tables or page numbers. However some consideration may be made as to what is best to include in the body of the report. You need a drop site of not less than 6 ft height. While dropping the helicopter your forearm should be horizontal. Keywords: Keyword1, keyword2, keyword3, keyword4, keyword5. You must include photos of the site and experiments in your report, also photos and videos of experiments in your presentation. INTRODUCTION You are limited to a minimum of 50 and maximum of 100 drops including pilot study (if any), experimental design, replicates and repeat measures. Explanation of the statistical analysis and any tools used should be mentioned in this section. A brief introduction of the problem, and your objective(s). You must do a bit of background research on paper helicopters but this is only a small component of the project. Introduction text. Introduction text. Introduction text. Introduction text. Introduction text. Introduction text. Introduction text. Introduction text. MATERIALS AND METHODS Explain in enough detail so that your experiment can be reproduced. Instructions and a template for the helicopter are provided in the appendix A. You need to achieve stability and capability to hit a 2 feet diameter target (USL = 1 ft from the target). Clearly explain the measures you take to achieve stability and capability. Clearly describe all control parameters involved. You must experiment at least 3 parameters, e.g., paper Figure 1: Example drop spot RESULTS & ANALYSIS This section should provide sufficient detail so that your analysis can be verified. A table of raw data may be better suited in the appendix. You are expected to analyze your design and present an optimal helicopter. Your results must demonstrate how you achieved stability, also Page 1 of 5 how you improved the capability of the helicopter. All the capability graphs and indexes for every control parameter should be reported. Presentation days are April 23, 28, and 30. Your final report is due May 1 at 11:59 pm via Blackboard submission. The marking rubric for the project is in Appendix B. More text. More text. More text. More text. More text. More text. More text. More text. More text. More text. More text. More text. More text.
