|Advisor:||Newcombe, W. R.|
|Keywords:||Mechanical Engineering;Mechanical Engineering|
|Abstract:||<p>The stirrup type spring that is used in the Conibear series of trans was analyzed and new springs for this type of trap were designed utilizing the non-linear optimization technique.</p> <p>The Jacob trap concert combined with the concept of a swinging interior mechanism for animal control was developed and optimized and four prototypes were manufactured and evaluated.</p> <p>Analytical methods for predicting the theoretical energy of closing Conibear and Jacob trans at various jaw openings were developed.</p>|
