2001 Assemble the Bench-Scale Model
Home Up

 

 

 

Construction of a bench-scale test model was the primary requirement for the Task 7 team.  This is the structure that would be subjected to a static loading test by the WERC test personnel.

 

Assembly of the bench-scale model. Final assembly at the booth.
   
Jason Wise right at home. A group of local elementary school kids came by to enjoy the festivities (and to get out of school for a while!).
   
Hoisting the bench-scale model onto the test rig. Bench-scale model fully rigged and under load.  Nothing visual of note happened as the load applied reached the maximum, which was, of course, the whole point.
