We are recruiting Team 2022!
Application deadline Sunday, September 3rd 2021, 23:59
The mechanical group is responsible for designing, building and testing the actual hardware of the rocket. You'll be working with modelling, analysis, production, and testing. All members will be given a intro level course for the necessary tools and technologies (CAD, FEM, Production, so on).
Conceptualize new designs.
Design components for production using CAD.
Analyse components and systems using FEM, CFD and other simulation methods.
Create representative prototypes for testing designs during development.
Plan and execute testing for verification and validation of design.
Iterate and optimize existing designs for weight, complexity, and other paramaters.
Cooperate on a collective project over multiple groups.
Have fun building rockets!
Here is some further information on the groups within Mechanical:
Mechanical fits perfectly for anyone who is studying or has competence within mechanical engineering, civil engineering, physics & mathematics, fluid dynamics, material engineering, aerospace engineering, or similar fields.
Expected workload is on average 20 hours per week.
As a member of inner structure, your responsibility is the inner workings of the rocket. There are many sub-systems and components that all need to be dealt with in a way that considers the rocket's structural integrity, stability during flight, as well as the available real estate. To end up with a system that takes this into account, you and your team will expand on materials and processing options, 3D-modeling , structural analysis, physical testing and structural simulations. Inner structure will cooperate closely with the other mechanical teams, since they are all highly interconnected.
