Following from Gate 2 the Lincoln School of Engineering teams of students are expected to start testing solutions and decide on three solutions for their Gate 3 assessment.
The teams of students who are working on the control systems project alongside tech guru, Jason Bradbury were donated a bicycle by Chain Reaction Cycles when their engineers came to the School of Engineering.
The students used their time with the engineers to discuss design ideas as well as asking questions about the bike, such as how heavy it is and what improvements they could make.
There are three different teams all working on their own design for the bike and at the end, the best design will be chosen for Jason to race up Lincoln’s iconic Michaelgate against a professional cyclist.
The students working on the mechanical project have also been testing out their solutions to detect voids within the resin held in generator coils for Cummins UK.
Teams have started testing their solutions to try and see if they can detect voids; they are encouraged to test all their possible solutions and find their most effective.
We will catch up with the teams in the New Year when they are assessed at Gate 3 and have chosen their three best designs and solutions.
