    Novel Demonstration Kits for Fundamental Mechanical Engineering Concepts

    Novel Demonstration Kits for Fundamental Mechanical Engineering Concepts

    The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of South Carolina offers academic programs and research opportunities in mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, and nuclear engineering led by experienced faculty. USC-ME is a Tier 1 research department, ranked #31 nationally and #1 in the state by the National Research Council. The Mechanical Engineering Department at UofSC is among the front-runners in innovation and technology and boasts one of the largest mechanical engineering programs in South Carolina. With approximately 900 undergraduate students, 180 graduate students and 34 full-time faculty, 5 full-time instructors, and 11 staff members, the department provides world-class, diverse, interdisciplinary, and cutting-edge engineering education to our students. High-quality engineering education is a key activity conducted within the Mechanical Engineering Department at UofSC across a range of courses ranging from introductory general engineering skills to highly specialized cutting-edge concepts. It is critical that students are well-educated in
    the fundamental concepts of general and mechanical engineering so that they can be developed into competent, successful engineers to make meaningful contributions to the engineering community.

    Mechanical engineering students, Annsley Gray, Michele Lunga, Matt Moore, and Evan Watson under the direction of the course instructor, Dr. Joshua Gray, corporate sponsor, Dr. Subramani Sockalingam, and faculty advisor, Dr. Odell Glenn, created a project entitled "Novel Demonstration Kits for Fundamental Mechanical Engineering Concepts" aimed to create a learning environment that would prove successful for students
    attempting to pass two historically rigid classes in the mechanical engineering department to further their degree achievement. The senior design team developed in-class demonstration kits incorporating novel approaches on the following key concepts related to EMCH 200, Statics and EMCH 260, Solid Mechanics: Force and moment equilibrium, Moment of inertia, Friction, Stress-strain, Mohr’s circle, Beam bending, Torsion, and Material failure. The team engaged in weekly meetings with the project sponsor and faculty mentor, market research, as well as interaction with students in these courses. Product Specifications were established through discussion and student testimonials during EMCH 200 classes and Supplemental instruction sessions. Ensuring that these needs are met will guarantee the project sponsor and their goal of consumer satisfaction.

    The three design concepts were #1, "The Length Game Design". Students will use the torque along the length of a wrench (also known as the moment arm) to find the force exerted on the wrench. The mechanical engineering students constructed the wrench from pre-manufactured ratchets.  The topics covered in this game are torque, mechanical advantage, and moment. Three topics for which concepts have been considered difficult for students to initially grasp.

    The 2nd design concept entitled "Seasaw Demonstration"  Moments and equilibrium design concepts were implemented here. Students used a 3D-printed design with premanufactured weights. In this design, students are given an unknown weight and a known length ratio for each side. They will then use the force balance equation to determine the weight needed on the other side to balance the seesaw.  

    Design #3 was entitled "3D Vector Plot Diagram". Visualizing 3-D can be very difficult for students to grasp especially in freshman and sophomore-level courses. Here students use strings on a smaller-scaled 3-D cube to simulate the x, y, and z-axis. The goal is to get students to visualize 3-D components.

    All 3 of these designs have been developed and are ready to be implemented in classrooms for trial testing.

    Annsley Gray is a senior mechanical engineering student having internship experience in manufacturing settings with reliability engineering and will be working at S

    GodSpeed with Daniel--Daniel Krynzel

    GodSpeed with Daniel--Daniel Krynzel

    In 2008 the real estate crash took Daniel out and he lost everything. He turned to drink and had nothing. He lost the house the cars, the toys, the money, and worst of all...custody of his children. After he got sober he started back into the business. He jumped back into the mortgage business and had massive financial success. Searching for his purpose, he then became a Coach, where he trained Realtors on lead gen and sales. And yet even after he had achieved all his goals and had all of the money he wanted (he had the house, the cars, the toys, the family life) he was still unfulfilled. He felt empty. This is when God stepped in...he told Daniel that his purpose was much bigger than what we were doing and that if he had the courage to listen to his direct guidance, he would be massively emotionally fulfilled and finally be living his true calling. This is where Godspeed with Daniel and this powerful App that connects people and puts people in direct conversation with God, called The God Walk App, was born. Now he lives a life of true fulfillment, a life most men could only dream of, not only having the money, the body, and health, the love of his life but also waking up every day talking with God and living his true purpose making a massive impact on the World.

    Jamal Jivanjee- Amazon best selling author, podcaster and full time life coach

    Jamal Jivanjee- Amazon best selling author, podcaster and full time life coach

    Jamal Jivanjee is a best-selling author, podcaster, and full-time life coach. As an author with over 25 years of experience working with people in various stages of personal struggle and challenges, after traveling to many cultures around the globe, and now as a full-time life coach, Jamal has discovered the common roots of human suffering along with the sustainable solutions required to help people become liberated and empowered. Jamal is passionate about serving individuals, couples and groups on the path toward enlightenment, wholeness and liberation.  Though helping to identity and clear energetic systems of belief that create fear, disharmony and disease, Jamal seeks to restore awareness of the ever present and unitive divine flow of abundance, good will and love that exist for us all physically, mentally and spiritually.

    Jamal was raised in Columbus, Ohio and grew up in a religious home, his father a devout Muslim and his mother an equally staunch Catholic. is parents were bound by their intellectual curiosity and their shared passion for books, which they passed along to their son. Driven in part by his voracious appetite for meaning and significance, Jamal came to the faith in Christ as a young adult and heard the call to ministry. He served as the pastor of his local church for a number of years until his personal journey eventually led him away from institutional religion altogether.

    Jamal started his work life as a corrections officer, then reemerged as the leader of his local church before ultimately transforming into a life-coach and writer. The path he traveled might seem random at first glance, but his explanation of exactly what he learned from each profession makes it clear that each step taken would not have occurred without the experience of the previous step.

    While interacting with prisoners, Jamal discovered that he loved working with people who were in desperate need of help due to a life of hardship. From that point on, each subsequent move he took made perfect sense in the evolution of becoming who is he today.

    Jamal’s evolution is relevant to countless Americans’ paths today. Thousands quite their jobs en masse in The Great Resignation after coming to a collective epiphany that the pandemic forced them to discover. They weren’t happy. We all know that jobs or careers can leave us feeling unfulfilled, but should they leave us feeling downright miserable?

    A recent Pew Research Center survey found that low pay, a lack of opportunities for advancement and feeling disrespected at work were the top reasons why Americans quit their jobs. The survey also found that those who quit and are now employed elsewhere are more likely than not to say their current job has better pay, more opportunities for advancement and more work-life balance and flexibility.

    Why does it take something enormous like a global pandemic for us to declare that we deserve better?

    Jamal likes to ask those who are looking for guidance -- what if you were told by your doctor that you had six months to live? How would your day today change? How much time and energy would you spend on drama and arguing with others? The point he makes is that we must not waste time waiting for the weekend or a vacation, much less retirement or even the promise of heaven itself. Living needs to begin today.
