Implosions in demolition jobs are multi-
ple explosions placed at specific points
causing a building to fall inward upon its
self. By definition this would be consid-
ered an implosion but we are designing/
developing a device that will accomplish
an implosion without use of many
outside resources.
The mechanical
aspect of this
project has gained
the interest of both
of us. Having the
opportunity to
design a device such as this will allow
us to maintain our interests, while also
benefiting the community as a whole.
Our purposes behind making this
device are to:
 Make an implosion device for
building demolition and making the
whole process easier.
 Helps limit the excess of any harm-
ful material (dust, debris, toxins,
ect.).
 Speeds up cleaning time frames by
localizing all materials in one central
spot.
Main Idea Implosion Process
Design Information
Exhaust ports– The exhaust ports on
the side of the device should allow the
device to spin and move slightly
upwards.
Main Exhaust ports/ Secondary
explosive openings– These ports will
allow the main explosion to exit from
the top and bottom of the device, and
with the spinning motion, should allow
for a spinning vortex to form to some
degree.
Liquid Nitrogen pockets– these
pockets will contain small amounts of
liquid nitrogen in each one, releasing
during the explosion, super cooling the
escaping fire and creating a small
tornado, giving the suction that is
required for this device.
Frame/Shell– The material that the
frame will be made of should be able to
withstand the pressure and heat and
then super cooling without breaking,
allowing the device to be used again in
another location.
