  • Blekicki, Tony (2012)
    Photovoltaics generate electricity by converting solar radiation into direct current electricity through the use of semiconductors that exhibit the photovoltaic effect. Due to growing demand for renewable energy sources, ...
  • Snyder, Garth; Hopcraft, Geoff (1990)
    This paper describes the design of a sophisticated chess-playing machine which is capable of moving its own pieces and automatically sensing the moves of its opponent. The machine is capable of performing most of the special ...
  • Ball, Erick (2011)
    An arrow-launching device ("hand ballista") has been developed using the principles of a compound bow, but relying on modern energy storage technologies in place of bending li,mbs. It is designed to use either bands of ...
  • Lloyd, Michael (2001)
    For my E90 Senior Design Project a high strength surfboard was designed and constructed. The objectives of this project were to research current surfboard materials and construction, to test various materials to determine ...
  • Clarke, James (1991)
    The goal of this project was to design and build a wind powered land vehicle. This vehicle uses a conventional sailbaord ng for propulsion and is intended for use on a variety of terrains including pavement, grass or ...
  • Arellano, Mike; Mish, Andy (2000)
    Our group's project was to successfully design and construct a lightweight concrete canoe. A hull design was chosen based on the principles of naval architecture. During the hull design, the most important parameters we ...
  • Hardin, Jennefer (1990)
    This project was undertaken in order to create an amplifier which could be used to reduce the effects of noise. The lock-in amplifier, because of its band-limiting qualities, is able to greatly reduce unwanted signals at ...
  • Sheer, Michael H. (1999)
    This report describes the design procedure and construction effort completed to produce an economical, self-weighted rugby serum machine. This project was undertaken to meet the Engineering 90 course criteria set forth ...
  • Anschel, Paul (1995)
    The following report describes the conversion of a standard internal combustion motorcycle to electric power. The analysis examines the general subject of electric vehicles and the methods of modeling an electric vehicle's ...
  • Samuelson, Katie (2014)
    A small-scale wave flume was designed and constructed for the Swarthmore College Engineering Department. Wave flumes are used in laboratories to conduct studies on fluid dynamics, wave theory, sediment transport, and ...
  • Kussmaul, Clifton (1989)
    This paper describes the design and implementation of an electronic percussion instrument. The instrument is played in a fashion similar to a xylophone, but notes are sensed optically and continuously, which means the ...
  • Flurie, Alexander D.; Pezzementi, Zachary A.; Hollinger, Geoffrey A. (2005)
    This paper describes the construction of a lighter-than-air robotic blimp for use in an urban search and rescue environment. The blimp uses an onboard wireless camera, sonar, and infrared sensors to perform tasks both ...
  • Sepri, Maila; Brody, Samantha (2005)
    The goal of our project is to design, construct and test an ROV that responds dependably to user commands. This task involves designing the physical structure of the ROV, its propulsion system, and its navigation system. ...
  • Szapiro, Nick; Anguah, Kofi (2009)
    The purpose of our senior design project is to construct a functioning hovercraft designed through fundamental principles. Through this design project, we explore the process of engineering from initial design to product ...
  • Salzman, Noah (1998)
    The purpose of this project was to design and construct a six legged walking robot. An innovative cam driven leg system was designed, constructed and tested with success. Hobby servo motors were used for positioning the ...
  • Leland, Julian (2012)
    A small-scale milling machine was designed, fabricated and constructed. This machine was intended to be "self-replicating," in the sense that a user equipped with an existing copy of the machine as well as basic hand and ...
  • Humphreys, Evan (1992)
    The preliminary investigations into small-scale solar powered engines resulted in the selection of a Stirling cycle engine as the type which would be pursued. The strategies discussed in the preliminary introduction and ...
  • Aiona, Adrienne (2000)
    This project involved two main components. The first was constructing a tubular skylight with a concentrator and the second was creating a ray tracing procedure to model the skylight. A compound parabolic concentrator ...
  • Knapp, Kyle; Ferchill, Price (2014)
    For this project, an affordable computer-vision based golf simulator was designed and constructed. The stroboscopic photography technique was implemented to capture high-speed images of golf balls being struck. The images ...
  • Velez, Roby (2009)
    This paper details my senior design project. It goes through the process of the creation of a simple, crawling robot. It describes different control algorithms used to make the robot crawl. One of the control algorithms ...
