dc.description.abstract <p>The Hydroswing door for large equipment access to the south end of the Harvest Storage and Transportation building requires manual operation through the entirety of the open/close cycle. The operation of the door has risks concerning the safety of people and equipment. The door must have a safety device in place to make sure there is no equipment or personal in the way while closing.</p> <p>o The client is an entity of Iowa State University located on the ISU BioCentury Research Farm.</p> <p>o Manually operating the door creates wasted time because it requires a person to stand by the button for about five minutes while the door is in operation.</p> <p>o Automating the door would allow the client to open the door by simply pressing a button, allowing the operator of the door to be able to carry out another task, examples would be preparing or moving equipment, while the door is running.</p> <p>o There is a safety concern with the door being hydraulic; it will cause damage to anything in the path of the door while in operation.</p> <p>o This problem is common among Hydroswing doors. They are common with aircraft hangers and other commercial buildings that need a large door for moving equipment in and out of the building.</p> <p>o The solution can be implemented to other doors that are similar in design.</p>
