My senior capstone project will be a door barricade. The main idea for the use of the door barricade is for schools in the case of an intruder. The barricade that I will be designing is a solution to the inefficient barricades that I saw at my high school. It could also be used at businesses and homes. My design would be easy to use and have a fail-safe option. The two areas of mechanical engineering technology that my capstone project will focus on are stress analysis and electronics. Every part for my door barricade is drawn in SolidWorks. All of the parts are assembled in a drawing. I did a statics analysis on two of my parts. There are also wiring diagrams for the toggle switch, photo eye and other electronics in my door barricade. Every detail of the project was documented. This report gives details of my senior capstone project for Mechanical Engineering Technology along with the drawings and calculations.
