Twin Horizontal Steam Engine: April 2017 -May 2017
For this project, I partnered with two of my classmates to design and assemble a dual horizontal steam engine in SolidWorks. This projected consisted of forty-one (41) individual unique parts. In our model, both of the pistons and all attached parts moved by moving the flywheel. In retrospect, if more time were allotted for this project, we likely could have created a simulation on the entire model and conducted a comprehensive analysis of the internal and external forces on this model. Moreover, we could have calculated its efficiency of the engine.
