2011 Human Powered Vehicle Challenge (HPVC)
Sponsored by
Human-powered transport is often the only type available in underdeveloped or inaccessible parts of the world, and if well designed, can be an increasingly viable form of sustainable transportation.
All participants must be current student members of ASME and enrolled as full-time students in an engineering program of study. Any student who was enrolled in an engineering program during the previous semester or quarter, but graduated no earlier than six months prior to the competition date, is eligible to participate. The first stage of the competition involves the preparation of a comprehensive design report. The second part includes a design presentation and a series of performance events (sprint/drag race, utility endurance, and speed endurance), held over the course of a weekend. Guidelines and more detailed requirements (including safety measures and tests) can be found in the

Testing new cargo trailer - October 10, 2002
Juergen Weichert Thanks to Brian Fitzpatrick for the photos. I had to transfer 2 suitcases full of tools from my Dad's car (at his work) to my house, about 3km away. I thought it would be a perfect time to test my new cargo trailer. These suitcases were HEAVY! (about 35lbs each). I wanted to make sure the suitcases were well secured. They had to be properly placed to balance the trailer and not interfere with the wheels. I guess I should get some sort of solid fenders. I used a standard automotive "come-along" with strong webbing to hold everything in place. I planned the trailer as a flat-bed design to be able to accomodate many different types of loads. There are eye bolts as tie-downs along all sides of the trailer. Here I am making sure everything is well secured. Tightening the tie-down. I do NOT want this load to come loose on the road. I looped the webbing through the suitcase handles, and ratcheted the come-along down tight until I could see the suitcases pressing firmly against the trailer framework. I hope I don't bend the trailer...but there is no visible distortion. The framework is one inch square tube, with .049" wall thickness. Cautiously testing...everything seems to be holding well. Look closely and you will see that I used the extra webbing as a safety strap, tied to my seat post....just in case something breaks or comes loose on the road!

28. Surreys By Tecnoart Of America, Inc - Quadricycle And Four Wheel Bikes
Manufacturer of four-wheel pedal-powered cycles known as surreys. Offers products for sale and surrey rental business opportunities.
The manufacturer known as Tecnoart di Pensalfini Sante created the Surreys in 1962, and is the leading supplier throughout Europe. In 1985, the Italian manufacturer entered into an exclusive agreement with Tecnoart of America, Inc., a family owned and operated business, to import and distribute the quadricycles. Through their combined efforts Tecnoart Surreys have gained tremendous popularity in America.
Easier than riding a bike, a quadricycle is a stable four wheeled pedal powered cycle, commonly referred to as a Surrey. It is designed to resemble the classic Model T automobile, and to make it possible for people of all ages and sizes to ride/exercise comfortably and worry free. No need to remember how to "ride a bike" because it has bench seats, rack and pinion steering (by
The frame is constructed with heavy gauge tubular steel for strength, then specially treated and powder coated for durability. All other frame components are stainless steel thus preventing rust, keeping "the look" clean, sharp, and attractive for the life of the surrey. Additionally, Tecnoart Surreys are the only surreys in their class equipped with an aluminum diamond plated running board for the comfort and safety of the middle passengers.

Barrie Royce (r) with Ben Wukasch '03 (back), Brent Bollman '03 (l) and Robert Wuertz '02 (Photo by Denise Applewhite) "The idea is to get students to think about science and engineering as part of real life"
By Steven Schultz By the time students left the second session of MAE 199 this fall, they were sweating. That wasn't because they had spent the last couple hours steeped in problems of physics, fluid dynamics and materials science. It had more to do with sitting on a stationary bicycle and pedaling madly while talking about physics, fluid dynamics and materials science. That's the way it is in Barrie Royce's Human-Powered Vehicles, a class in which the bicycle is as much a teaching tool as the blackboard. The course explores the machines humans have devised to leverage their own strength and propel themselves faster and farther than their own two feet could carry them. It ranges from dugout canoes to human-powered airplanes but focuses on the bicycle. "The idea is to get students to think about science and engineering as something that's part of real life," says Royce, who is professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering.

39. Program: Hpv (updated 10/2/07)
Human powered vehicles range in complexity from amateur homebuilt machines to exotic machines suitable for commuting or touring, such as the Danish Leitra shown below.
Human Power Vehicles - 1 (Program: "hpv")
This exercise is the first of a sequence of six programming exercises based on a common theme (which we will develop and evolve throughout the rest of the quarter) in which we wish to evaluate the performance of human powered vehicles (hpv) for land transportation. Performance refers to the steady state velocity reached versus applied human power under constant specific conditions.
Human powered vehicles have captured the imagination of designers, builders, and riders all over the world, for transportation, load carrying, socializing, racing, and touring. My favorite hpv link is the International Human Powered Vehicle Association site which gives one a glimps into hpv activity throughout the world. A more general directory of cycling related websites is presented in Cycling Resources In 1992, the 200m world human powered land speed record was set by team Cheetah at 68.73mph. This record was broken by Canadian Sam Whittingham during the 2002 Human Powered Speed Championships in Battle Mountain, Nevada at 81.00mph! (This remarkable record has not been broken since - refer to the 2007 World Human Power Speed Challenge history of previous events). During the same event in 2002, Sam's wife

ISR # 11 The Foundation for Underwater Research and Education (FURE) and the ISR Organization announce the dates ofthe at the Naval Surface Warfare Center-Carderock Division, Bethesda, Maryland. Interested parties may continue to contact race officials as listed on the Contacts section of the website.
About the Races
The first human-powered International Submarine Race TM (ISR) was held in 1989 at Singer Island off Riveria Beach, Florida and drew 17 boats. ISR 2 grew to 35 sub team entries in 1991. ISR 3 in 1993 off Ft. Lauderdale drew 44 submarine teams. The 1995 design competition, ISR 4, was the first in a controlled environment. The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, David Taylor Model Basin in Bethesda, Maryland became the host of the submarine races. Eleven entries competed. ISR 5 at Carderock in 1997, drew 16 submarine teams Each team must develop a one or two-person "Wet" submarine. Two-person subs must have one person providing the propulsion and the other navigating and steering. Both crew members breathe SCUBA from the air supply carried aboard. Each sub is unique, designed from "scratch," and relies upon novel techniques for propulsion and guidance.The International Submarine Race's TM specific goals are: To inspire students of the various engineering disciplines to delve into broad areas of underwater technology advancement and to provide them an educational experience that translates their theoretical knowledge into reality.
