MAPLE SUGARING

This is the sap boiler I made for maple sugaring. I made it from a 50-gallon oil drum by cutting holes in it for the boiling pans, the door and the chimney, and then placing it on its side. I only have five trees tapped, but we make enough maple syrup to supply my family for the year.

engineering calculations

NAW HW11 pg.1.jpg

This is a sample of my work from structural analysis class. In this homework I was using the virtual work method to determine the virtual displacement and then solve for the required support reaction at point B. this is an example of my ability to perform complex structural calculations that involve calculus.

Presentation Board A2.jpg

This is the final presentation of a structural design project I worked on in a team of four students in my structural design class. I was responsible for designing the member layout and selecting members to be as economical as possible, while not obstructing architectural features of the building. I also write the entire final report, and designed half the members. Because I took the lead role in the project, I was in charge of ensuring that the project was of high quality and submitted on time.
