The Benchtop centrifuge for materials science was designed to be a versatile, cost-effective, user-friendly and safe centrifuge for the university setting. While a prototype was not completed due to running out of time for assembly, various forms of analysis were conducted including Natural Frequency Analysis and Finite Element Analysis. The team hopes that the work completed will provide a useful starting point for other teams that may wish to continue the project in the future.
