COVID19

COVID19 Research Project

This project is in partnership with the Military Technological College (MTC) Aeronautical Department (Muscat, Oman)

Overview

This project is about designing and building a low-cost Rapidly Manufactured Ventilation Systems (RMVS) to meet the Product Design Specification from the Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Authority MHRA UK.

Ventilator (USA)

PAPR

Buildable, pressure tested, and active. We recommend that project and its creator, Johnny Lee, be given all the money and volunteer assistance it needs.

oxyGEN (Protofy: Spain)

BVM

Buildable and active but not pressure tested.

OSV (Ireland)

BVM

well-organised, active, fully open project, but as of this writing not buildable.

Note: These projects MUST be monitored by the team.

Research Activities

  1. Numerical Simulations: Rotating body CFD, Plastics FEA, Single and Multi- Phase Flow, Multiphysics Simulations.
  2. CAD modelling and 3D printing using Solidworks
  3. Physical modelling of control, fluid and electromechanical systems using MATLAB.
  4. Prototyping control systems using open source HW/SW.

 

Product Design Specification (PDS)

A PDS is being drafted during the initial stage of this project. A brief guideline is provided below:

List of CAE Design Studies:

  1. Multiphysics simulation analysis for a 3D printed air blower.
  2. Particle flow in tubing and fittings using multiphase CFD simulations.
  3. Mechanical properties of 3D printed composites using experiments and FEA.
