MAE Undergraduate Students are Learning How to Deal with Failure
Thu, April 11, 2013 - Dr. Good, instructor of MAE 4363, challenges his students to complete design projects. One of the challenges during the Spring 2013 semester was to build a frame from 6061-T6511 aluminum, that had as low a weight as possible but can withstand a load of 8000 pounds. The average weight of the students designs was 0.55 pounds and the average load that the frames could withstand was 7638 pounds. Great job Dr. Good and MAE 4363 students. Please see the attached report for more information.
