The focus on this design project was to improve the shortcomings of a previous design, and to maintain ease of use, for implementation of a fluids lab experiment. The goal was to be able to have the operator utilize the launcher safely and being able to physically understand Fluid Dynamic phenomena. The main Fluid Dynamic topics that were accounted for were: friction in a barrel, friction in air, and pressure losses. The main improvements to the previous design are found below.
