Article Title: Computer Aided Design of Dashpot for 0.040-2ton Vibrating Machines
by Adeyeri M. K., Ayodeji S. P, Emovon I., Adesina F., Oguntuyi V. F.

Building cracks and failures are proned to areas where machinery are being used, especially in locations where domesticated activities like grinding, milling turning operations and just to mention afew are means of livelihood. As these activities are being carried out daily, there is possibilty of setting the neighbouring and adjacent buildings into vibration. In order to avert the inherent danger of building collapse, this research work, Computer aided design of dashpot for machinery with masses between 40Kg and 2000Kg is necessitated for. The dashpot is designed after the similitude of an automobile shock absorber. It comprises cylinder (piston housing), piston, connecting rod (shaft), spring, rubber pad or silencer rubber, plate (load carrier), fluid and rubber seal. The work done was designed using virtual engineering through Computer aided design and simulation of the dashpot in AUTOCAD together with 3D studio max. Adobe premiere and Visual Basic 6.0 is used to design parts of the interfaces for simulation to see the effect of this when being loaded with machinery of various tonnages. The still images are edited with adobe Photoshop and fireworks, and the text animation was done with Adobe premiere. The result of the research work is moderately perfected and the knowledge has therein could be used in designing for other machinery as the need arises
