DESIGN, MODELLING AND SIMULATION OF A GRILL-ROTISSERIE ASSEMBLY
Keywords:conceptual design, modular construction, requirements list, grill-rotisserie configuration, 3D modelling, multifunctionality, simulation
This paper proposes the conceptual design and modelling by iterative improvements of two concepts of grill-rotisserie assembly, based on the idea of multifunctionality. The final variant of the solution was determined by successive modifications and improvements that would optimally satisfy the list of requirements declared at the beginning of the development process. The first concept of smaller dimensions is a simple grill with lid, or roaster with a single attachment. The second model has larger dimensions, for use in campsites, with the possibility of being a grill, but also a rotisserie, thanks to the equipment with several small transverse spikes that can rotate simultaneously, and with a long spike, that allows rotation a whole animal. This complex multi-component system can be considered truly multifunctional. A comparison is made between the first model and the redesigned new model, depending on the dimensions determined by the size of the structure. In addition to this comparison, a simulation of the rotating spike will be performed using the finite element method to establish the feasibility and success rate of such a concept.
