The Eight Steps Of The Engineering Process

Omicron

Disaster Response & Management: Mackenzie

Green Technology Engineer: Ellie

Biotechnology Engineer: Juliya Computer Simulations: Elijah

Environmental Engineer: Daniel

Robotics Engineer: Garret


Omicron

Omicron

4 wildfires: Waldo, Springen, Schadt, and Kleiner Sand Drought Forest (Invasive spruce trees, infestation of bark beetles, landslides)

Omicron

Omicron

Fire: Property, Money, Time, lack of water, casualties, weather, manpower, foehn winds (hot, dry wind that sweeps over mountains) Drought: Lack of water conservation, money, time, weather Forest: Lack of water, weather, fire, money, time, manpower, soil
Omicron

Omicron

Trenches to stop ground and surface fires Cutting down of trees around fire limits to stop movement of crown fires (fire on the tree canopies) Sapphire-ecofriendly chemical that mixes with water to put out fires Contain fire and let it burn out naturally (Letburn policy)
Omicron
Omicron

Water conservation Bring in water from another country

Release of iodine particles into the atmosphere so water molecules can bond to it and create rain
Lower carbon dioxide levels by going green
Omicron

Omicron

Let fire burn off invasive spruce trees Bark beetles die with spruce trees (main food source) so infestation ends

Replant the forest


Erosion/landslide fences

Let forest grow back naturally with no human interaction


Omicron

Omicron

Fire: Let-burn policy while containing fire Drought: Iodine particles, water conservation, less carbon dioxide Forest: Replant some plants, let spruce trees and bark beetles die from fire
Omicron

Omicron

Fire: Rain is coming, so we only need to contain it Drought: Iodine particles to help coming rain, lessen carbon footprint Forest: Is now a bigger problem because of rain, which causes more difficulties with the soil
Omicron

Omicron

After exposure to heat and dryness for extended periods of time, soil becomes hydrophobic (water resistant) Rain can cause soil to loosen and start a landslide

Ash from fire might upset pH levels and contaminate water

Makeup of soil is not conducive for becoming hydrophobic pH will not be affected from the ash, nor will the ash contaminate the water because it sinks to the river bottom Fences can be put up to stop possibility of landslide occurring Lots of organic material and clay is present in the soil, so it sticks together and probably will not start a landslide

Omicron

Evacuation will take place to evade the fire and possible landslides Fences can hold back landslide and bulldozer can push soil back Rain is coming, so no more drought

The fire will extinguish the invasive spruce trees and bark beetles

Computer Simulations designed a nozzle to extinguish fire more efficiently Green Tech created a solar and wind powered battery to give energy to water pumps

Robotics built robot to rescue people from fire and aid in evacuation

After 3 models, Computer Simulations perfected the nozzle by enlarging the end tip Green Tech worked out the problems with the battery to make it more efficient Robotics refined the robot design to better rescue people in danger and traverse the land (treads instead of wheels)
