Group 6 - Mini-Bike
This project is a formal reverse engineering study of a mini-bike. The project is meant to enhance the group's technical writing skills, engineering analysis, website design and teamwork.
In order to mirror an actual engineering evaluation the project was split up into 5 gates with definite due dates and requirements, these gates are listed below with their respective subsections.
The objective of this project is to better understand the product through dismantling, modeling and reassembly. The product is a mini-bike not yet out on the market. It is designed only for recreational uses. Its top speed is approximately 10 mph. It stands up well without any external support and with its wide tires and low center of gravity is very stable even at very low speeds. The throttle is in the very convenient position of the right handlebar grip. The throttle signals the fuel air mixture flow mass flow rate to increase converting chemical energy to reciprocating mechanical energy and waste thermal energy in the combustion chamber then the reciprocating mechanical energy is turned into rotational mechanical energy by the clutch and transferred through the chain to the rear axle where the rear wheel in combination with the surface it rests on turns that rotary motion into linear motion.
