MEng Group Project 2006/07

More fun than it sounds...


Aims and Objectives

To design, simulate and prototype a particle control system, primairily for an office environment.
This system will incorporate particle detection and then subsequent removal using a specifically designed air conditioning system. We will initially focus on airborne smoke particles.

The project has two distinct practical parts:
1) Simulate particle/air dynamics using Star CD.
2) Design, build and use a test rig to conduct 'real world' simulations.

For further details see the Project Outline.
