Problem Statement

  • Dr. Dirk Maier is a post-harvest engineering professor at Iowa State University and wants to expand the grain processing program
  • A continuous-flow grain dryer for labs and research is needed.
  • The dryer is to be designed, built, and configured all from scratch by the capstone team, implementing the designs and specifications Dr. Maier requires.
  • Our dryer will be finished by the next technology capstone team and be used by classes to come.
  • This project’s broader scope and initial capstone stages were developed from two previous capstone projects, referenced below.
