Design and Analysis of Coconut Tree Climbing Bike Using Reverse Engineering Technique
Keywords:Reverse Engineering, coconut tree, climbing bike
Coconut tree is a hard-shelled seed of coconut tree growing to a height of eight-meter to 30m. It is one of the most important crops in the world. Coconut is considered as a healthy food and is used in a variety of food and medicine In this research, it is done to design the coconut tress climbing bike using a reverse engineering technique. This research is aimed at solving the problem that being face by the most of the climber that did not have a complete equipment and technology to climb the coconut trees. This project is more focusing on the reversed engineering technique that basically based on available medium internet source. Throughout the investigation and analysis, references based to the Ganapathi Bhat design process were studied to know the required information including load capacity, weight, price, size and required speed. The simulation and engineering analysis are completed using SolidWorks software to evaluate the specification. Based on the result from the analysis and simulation, this design is able support and carry a user of 80kg to climb the coconut tree. The maximum speed of the coconut tree climbing bike is estimated as of 0.6m/s. The design of the coconut tree climbing bike with the dimension of 717mm(L) x 539mm(W) x 415mm(H) and the total weight is 29.7kg. The selling price for this bike is estimated approximate RM3532.15. This project is hoped to provide readers with information to create the product of the Coconut Tree Climbing Bike in Malaysia. Hence, hopefully this research can help to introduce this technology in more detail to the universities and citizens.
