Rizwan Syed (Mechanical Engineer) also continued helping finish the Vermiculture Toilet designs. This week, Rizwan performed a modified structural analysis on the rectangular steel plate using ANSYS FEA by incorporating the correct thickness of the steel plate. He calculated the total deformation and maximum Von Mises stress, verifying the results with hand calculations to determine the structural durability of the slider plate. He updated the vermiculture loading spreadsheet by incorporating the latest drawer and chamber dimensions and subtracting the inner volume of the drawer from the main volume. He began summarizing key design accomplishments of the vermiculture eco-toilet design project for the past three months to document them effectively on One Community’s website. Additionally, Rizwan researched design strategies to integrate the unistrut wing connector into the vermiculture assembly for a singular unistrut construct to connect multiple members. The vermiculture toilets and other sustainable human waste processing technologies form the basis of One Community’s open source prioritizing positive global change model. Here are a few photos showing examples of his work.

EARTHBAG VILLAGE 4-DOME HOME TEAM

The Earthbag Village 4-dome Home Team was managed by Khushboo Parmar (Project Manager) and includes Michaela Silva (Architect)Adefola Madehin (Electrical Design Specialist)Yusuf Thanawala (Structural Engineer), and Karthik Pillai (Volunteer Mechanical Engineer).This week, Karthik focused on completing the four-dome design and understanding the roof loft structure on the 4-Dome Roof Cluster Team, assembling the domes with assistance from Abhishek’s files and directions from Michaela. He also began learning Revit from the basics to support the team and future projects, uploading all necessary files to Dropbox for team access, and plans to continue building Revit skills and optimizing the design to incorporate Michaela’s proposed updates. Yusuf completed the loft design for a live load of 5 kN/m², leading to a wood joist spacing of 400 mm for a 5-meter span. Observing this spacing to be less than expected, he is investigating how STAAD.Pro analyzes and designs the beam, noting that code checking with respect to American timber construction is automatically performed in STAAD.Pro, which may explain the low joist spacing. Michaela updated the details of doors and archways to align with Earthbag dimensions, assessed code compliance for access to the lofts in the domes, recommended an alternating tread stair for optimal suitability, used Revit to model the dome and proposed stair, and finalized the base floor plan accordingly. Fola completed the socket and panel layout for the Earthbag Village project, placing receptacles in the bedrooms and living room, installing the distribution panel in the living room, and preparing to work on the schematic diagram for the distribution panel using the American standard of single-phase voltage. Khushboo held the 4-Dome Cluster Roof meeting with both engineers to identify blockers and determine what is needed to overcome them, monitored everyone’s progress throughout the week to ensure that the projects are advancing on schedule, and set up an interview with a software engineer to recruit more volunteers. The Earthbag village forms the basis of One Community’s open source model for prioritizing positive global change. See their work in the collage below.
