of Nevada - Reno"
Spirit of Competition Award
Reno relied on 2 people to deliver their presentation. They used 1 screen and presented their effort from a business standpoint.
After team introductions, the team outlined their presentation. They began by elaborating on the attributes of their hull. The team explained the advantages of their asymmetrical design and hard chines.
Reno performed an Excel based analysis to evaluate different loading conditions. The team found that the critical load occurred when the canoe was supported under its own weight.
Mix design came next and the team outlined the required parameters. They explained how they tested their mix to achieve the desired characteristics.
After giving the specification for air content and strength, they showed a pie chart that nicely demonstrated their mix proportions. They went on to describe their reinforcement and elaborated on the testing methods used to determine its properties.
Construction came next. The team explained how they constructed their mold using a hot wire. The methods used to construct the canoe were described and they ended the show with a fast forward animation showing the construction process.
