The company’s broad vision is to utilize this technology to develop a detailed simulation of the toggle clamp and to adapt the prototype to be both functionally and structurally superior to other products on the market. This effort is to be divided into several phases: (1) The first covering the reverse engineering effort for the prototype including a performance simulation (the clamp lock mechanism), interface design requirements, (2) The loading analysis, and design check under both normal, and (3) The final report for recommendation and conclusions comparing the performance to the required design specifications. Your professor will act as department head and guide you thru this simulation-based research and design project along with mentoring each student in developing / refining their design skills. Understanding that learning is a lifelong endeavor and knowledge of contemporary political / technical issues is an essential component of continued success will be emphasized. Minor Project Details: The isometric view of the toggle clamp is shown in Figure 1….
