Spring 2018 - First bi-weekly meeting with Futran
This week we started our first meeting with Futran, giving a run through of our progress as well as addressing what we need to finish. We have so far finished dimensioning the 2D drawings and have sent them in for review to Vanderbend. We are hopeful in receiving a quotation for all the parts by Friday, and can begin purchasing early next week. In addition, we need to revisit the part drawings of the Solomon's knot columns that Lalith had sent over to Vanderbend in order to use them for the full-scale drawings. Afterwards we can finish up the column-track clamping design after Keon has finished implementing his third rail design into the system. Once these are completed, we can start running tests for the finite element analysis of our new structure.
