Our Group at Nucor

Purpose


Our job was to come up with the main
materials that would be required for some
of the major attractions.


We focused our efforts on the
Rollercoaster and the Waterslide.

Rollercoaster
-

Materials


1018 Steel supports, washer plates, nuts,
and bolts


Concrete footers


Urethane coated wheels

Why 1018 Steel?


This alloy is relatively affordable, and it
has good weldability.


The latter is especially important because
the entire frame is welded together.


The maximum yield for this steel is 53,700
psi.

Roller Coaster Cross

Mathematical assumptions


For the rollercoaster, the weight of one car
will be approximately 700 pounds.


There will be four passengers per car
weighing a combined 1000 pounds.


The force (F) on one wheel is half of the
total weight.


The total weight equals 1700 pounds and
the force will equal 850 pounds per wheel.

Concrete


We will be using a fiberglass and rebar
composite concrete for the foundations of
both the Water Slide and the
Rollercoaster.


Concrete is strong in compression, and
the addition of both fiberglass and rebar
improve its tensile strength.

Waterslide


Materials


Epoxy coated Fiberglass for slide


1018 Steel for structure


Concrete foundation

What's with the coating?


The Epoxy coating is needed to prevent
the fiberglass from splintering and harming
anyone.


Fiberglass is a light, sturdy material used
in water slides for its ability to be molded
to just about any shape and for its
durability.
