Wind pump in action

The Wind Pump is a project from the sophomore-level course MAE 2250: Mechanical Synthesis. the goal is to design and fabricate a wind-powered pump capable of pumping 1 liter water 1.5 meters upwards per minute using the provided wind turbine.

My contribution includes making key design decisions, develop overall CAD model and performing the majority of mathematical calculations as a proof of concept.

 

The result is a single piston single cylinder crankshaft pump capable of performing the required task.
